Tears Of A Dinosaur

Tears Of A Dinosaur

Set in an odd domestic landscape of original music and intriguing marionettes, three forlorn characters quest for the impossible.  A youth who imagines himself a saint, a hobbyist with a zeal for family, and a haunted housewife team up to create a highly theatrical examination of survival.  

The production ran one hour and ten minutes.

During the 1988 Edmonton Fringe Festival, Tears Of A Dinosaur was performed at midnight.
