Malthouse Theatre & FRINGE FESTIVAL
APPLES AND LADDERS
“A charming and surprisingly touching, human drama in miniature” The Age.
In a twisted suburban fable of loss and redemption we find a miniature cabaret where lovers and drag queens sell their souls for the ultimate life of affection.
Puppeteers Sarah Kriegler and Jacob Williams presented this beer-stained story of a neighbourhood not unfamiliar. Supported by music from UK Gypsy band, The Tiger Lillies, Apples and Ladders portrays love, sadness and dreams using layered images of shadow puppetry, marionettes, object-theatre and Bunraku puppets.
Apples and Ladders was presented in-rep with APHIDS production of A Quarreling Pair.
