Summary

In Extraordinary Extremities, the puppet-maker Geppetto has recently lost his wife, the other half of the Mythic Puppet Theater that presents classic Greek myths. The play centers around Geppetto performing, solo for the first time, the grand love story of Perseus, who slays a sea monster to save his beloved Andromeda. As things being to go awry, he must devise new scripts, new endings, and even new limbs. "Extraordinary Extremities" is a tale of resilience, adaptation and ingenuity.

"The play focuses on a longing for magic, a wish for a transformative power...A compelling performance, enhanced by haunting cello music... It celebrates human ingenuity." - The New York Times
