Small Acts of Daring Invention, inspired by the life and work of Dare Wright, author of the children’s book series The Lonely Doll, is an image-rich, musically-driven exploration of the space between this life and the next. The play teases the realness of the unreal and investigates the endless resources of the imaginative realm. With one actress and four puppeteers, Small Acts lives in an expansive world where the child and adult consciousness coexist. The play asks: How do we bury and resurrect the past? Where does our soul find its home? How do we confront reality and dare to invent our own? On a journey delicate, dangerous, playful and dark, transcendence is the final destination.

Written and conceived by Mason Holdings Founder and Artistic Director Tracy Weller and created with longtime collaborators director Kristjan Thor and set designers Christopher and Justin Swader, Small Acts of Daring Invention features puppetry by Simple Mischief Studio.
