Innocent When You Dream

by Zeb L. West
presented by Trouble Puppet Theater Co. in an intimate studio venue
October 25 and 26, 2013
Salvage Vanguard Theatre, 2803 Manor Rd., 8 p.m.
Tickets available via
brown paper tickets

This play takes place inside the belly of a whale! Jonah has been swallowed and driven mad by having only two books to read - Don Quixote and Moby-Dick. This solo adventure uses puppets, masks, animated projections, physical comedy, and sea shanties to smash two literary epics into an hour of shameless antics!

It's about that rock bottom moment after a tragedy (in this case, Jonah's broken heart) when you decide how you're going to think and how you're going to treat yourself.

""A strange and disarmingly delightful mashup using puppetry, songs, and some appropriately goofy, often ingenious props . . . the play keeps smiles on everyone's faces throughout."    The Visitorium

"West is an engaging performer with a creative, honest and cleverly metaphoric story about being in love with someone who used to love you back. West's heart is so epically broken and the wounds so fresh you can't look away. The pain inspires a ukulele song at the end, which is unquotable but brutally funny."    The StarPhoenix Saskatoon
