The Old Trout Puppet Workshop

Hast thou slain the Jabberwock?

A piece of theatre inspired by Lewis Carroll that is, indeed, inspired.

Kelly Nestruck, Globe and Mail


Created by The Old Trout Puppet Workshop

Beware the Jabberwock!

Such is the frantic warning inscribed to us in the strange and ancient poem known as Jabberwocky… but what monster does it actually mean?  Is it fanged or flapping, furry or finned, ferocious or formless? Is it outside our bedroom door even now, drooling?  Or is it already amongst us? Do not fear: in this, their brand new puppet extravaganza for adults, the Old Trouts clutch their vorpal swords in hand, and valiantly promise to save us all from the things that haunt us in the night.
