The Old Man and The Old Moon

WEST COAST PREMIERE
May 13 – June 18, 2017
(Opening Night: May 18)

Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage
Old Globe Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

By PigPen Theatre Co.
Co-directed by Stuart Carden and PigPen Theatre Co.

After award-winning runs in New York, Chicago, and Boston, the endlessly imaginative PigPen Theatre Co. arrives in San Diego with The Old Man and The Old Moon. Combining their signature cinematic shadow puppetry, wonderfully melodic indie-folk music, exuberant energy, and rollicking array of ever-changing characters, PigPen spins a fantastical fable for all ages. The Old Man tends to The Old Moon, refilling the light that spills out every night. When his wife unexpectedly leaves home, The Old Man abandons his post and plunges the world into darkness. His eventful journey across land, air, and sea to find her reminds them—and us—of the unwavering power of love. The New York Times declared that PigPen “asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling while speaking to the childish mind in all of us,” and New York magazine said PigPen shows us “how unapologetically and unpretentiously playful theater can be.”
