“The Old Man and The Old Moon” tells the epic tale of one elderly gentleman’s spectacular voyage to the ends of the earth in search of his lost love.
Bound to his duties as the caretaker of the moon, the Old Man of the title lives a quiet, contented life until the day he discovers his beloved wife has left their home in search of a mysterious melody carried in the ocean breeze. In her pursuit, the Old Man will encounter titanic leviathans of the deep, apocalyptic storms, civil wars, cantankerous ghosts and an entire world peopled by startling characters and fantastical creatures.
Through sweepingly cinematic folk music, clever puppetry, and charmingly theatrical antics, the young men of the PigPen Theatre Co. bring the Old Man’s story to brilliant, vibrant life with wit, style, and surprising emotional depth. “The Old Man and The Old Moon” is PigPen’s debut full-length production.
