LONGING PINOCCHIO

Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group and Aliens With Extraordinary Abilities proudly present

an authentic, all-Italian cast as they bring-to-life their outlandish and dark adaptation of the classic

"Pinocchio"

While mourning Geppetto The Woodcarver at his funeral reception,

we discover that every bizarre character from Collodi's world-renown fairy tale

is present - all except for his beloved puppet!

Where is Pinocchio?

Was the wooden boy ever real or just a figment of a lonely man's imagination at the twilight of his life?

Featuring Valeria lacampo, Veronica Nolte and Eric Paterniani.

Produced by Zombie Joe.

For Ages 13 and up.

SUNDAYS & TUESDAYS @ 8:30pm August 19, 21, 26 and 28, 2018

Increasingly, the chaotic and often terrifying adventures of Pinocchio become sheathed in shadows. Appropriate. For as much as this is an Odyssey of sorts, it is also a Divine Comedy. Not only a wild, magical world of talking animals, a turquoise fairie, and meetings inside monsters make up this tale. We also watch a journey through Purgatory, Hell and maybe even a glimpse of Heaven. At one point we pretty clearly see beyond death itself.

...the performers spin the incredibly modest resources of a tiny venue, a few platforms, and a sound system into the most compelling theatrical gold... Yes, the narrative is traditional, but the general mood of eerie unease, combined with imaginative moments and gestures, belies its deceptive simplicity. - RECOMMENDED
