Dogugaeshi (4/30-5/03)

“A gorgeous..cavorting..dance…it will come to you as far as you let it in” – The New York Times

Dogugaeshi by Basil Twist : Meet George Marvin Brush—Don Quixote come to Main Street in the Great Depression, and one of Thornton Wilder’s most memorable characters. A traveling textbook salesman, he is also a fervent religious convert determined to lead “a good life.” In a startlingly relevant tale of religion and tolerance—with poignant and sometimes hilarious consequences—his travels take him through smoking cars, bawdy houses, banks, and campgrounds from Texas to Illinois—and into the soul of America.

The multidisciplinary production blends Twist’s signature puppetry with video projection design by Peter Flaherty, Lighting design by Andrew Hill and sound design by Greg Duffin.
