Les Sages Fous
Saison de Theatre Insolite
Trois Riveries, Quebec
An odd young woman acquires a "puzzle box" - a mysteriously locked wooden chest with no apparent door or lid, no hinges, and no clues. This meeting of the strange girl and the strange box ignites a series of astonishing events, while a parade of eccentric characters seeks to cure her mania. As the solution to the mystery unravels, the story begins to shift and double back, revealing hidden passages and unexpected turns just like the puzzle box itself. Employing heightened physicality, stylized staging and cryptic language, "The Puzzle Box" will mesmerize and surprise. Five actors populate a dreamlike world of shifting realities, unimaginable loss and miraculous redemption in "The Puzzle Box."
The Ensemble: Dana Wieluns Legawiec, Stephen Legawiec, Kathleen Nation, Tom Marion, Marjolaine Whittlesey.
