    Innocent When You Dream

    Presented by at Salvage Vanguard Theater

    October 25 - October 26, 2013


    Innocent When You Dream

     A one-man show, funny and heartfelt, using puppets, masks, physical comedy, and song

    Innocent When You Dream takes place inside the belly of a whale! Jonah has been swallowed and driven mad by having only two books to read—Don Quixote and Moby-Dick. This solo adventure uses puppets, masks, animated projections, physical comedy, and sea shanties to smash two literary epics into an hour of shameless antics!

    It's a funny, irreverent, heartfelt look at that rock bottom moment after a tragedy (in this case, Jonah's broken heart) when you decide how you're going to think and how you're going to treat yourself.

    Presented by Trouble Puppet Theater Co. in SVT’s intimate studio venue.

    Praise for the show from this summer’s tour
    "A strange and disarmingly delightful mashup using puppetry, songs, and some appropriately goofy, often ingenious props . . . the play keeps smiles on everyone's faces throughout." —The Visitorium

    "West is an engaging performer with a creative, honest and cleverly metaphoric story about being in love with someone who used to love you back. West's heart is so epically broken and the wounds so fresh you can't look away. The pain inspires a ukulele song at the end, which is unquotable but brutally funny."
    —The Star Phoenix Saskatoon
