The Pandemic Plays: 407C’s Puppet Theatre

Radial Theater Project

About the project and the company

407C’s Puppet Theatre by Darby Sherwood is part of a series of new plays collectively titled The Pandemic Plays, commissioned and produced by Radial Theater Project in association with 18th & Union.
407C’s Puppet Theatre is about two exes reconvening and playing out some of their memories with paper bag puppets. It takes place during the pandemic and is about the burden of memory when we have so much extra time to think.

Each of The Pandemic Plays will be performed live at 18th & Union during the month of October, 2020. There will be at least 5 live performances of each play, maybe 6.

The plays will be performed live and broadcast over a live stream. If possible we’ll have a small number of in-person audience members in addition to the live stream; that’s Plan A. If we can’t allow audience members into the space due to public health restrictions, we’ll perform at 18th & Union and the show will only be viewable online; that’s Plan B. And if we can’t have anyone in the space we’ll live stream from actors’ homes; that’s Plan C.

Plays are being written and staged to ensure proper physical distancing throughout the rehearsal and performance process.

Regardless of the characters’ names or descriptions, both can be of any ethnicity or gender.
