Filled with elements like porcupines in doomed love affairs, a child abandoned by his wild mother, and mysteriously glowing waters, The Ballad of Karla Fox is an intense, pitch-dark, psychologically thrilling shadow puppet show. The story centers on Karla Fox in the wake of the suspicious death of her parents, killed in an accident involving a drunk bulldog behind the wheel of a moving van filled with pianos. Now living with her strict and strange Aunt Sadie, Karla will soon learn that trouble is everywhere in this wicked world of ours, as she's forced to flee for her very life in the middle of the night. Written by Scot Augustson, who also made the show's imaginative puppets, The Ballad of Karla Fox can be seen at Seattle's Theatre Off Jackson.
This show is approximately two hours long and recommended for ages 14 and older.
