“The Old Man and The Old Moon," a story-telling play with folk music, developed by the PigPen Theater Company in 2012, tells the epic tale of an Old Man who abandons his lifelong duty -- filling up the moon with liquid light -- to cross seas and skies in search of his missing wife. Delightfully imaginative and whimsical, for ages 8-108.Running time: 100 minutes, with intermission.
"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded ... [PigPen] asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us." - Ben Brantley of The New York Times
