Mr. M


The production emphasizes object theater over puppetry. Mr. M’s furniture moves around him, the room morphs into a concentration camp in his dreams, and reality turns inside out as he visits his friends in “reality,” and they visit him in his “imagination.” There is one directly manipulated puppet, Mr. M’s shadow or alter ego.
