Wood Boy Dog Fish


Based on The Adventures of Pinocchio By Carlo Collodi
Pinocchio like only the Rogues could imagine it. Guard your crickets.

Experience the Rogue’s delightfully macabre take on a story you think you know in this modern day twist on the classic Italian tale.  In this world-premiere play for mature audiences the cricket is killed, Blue haunts us all and the Dogfish lurks in the corner waiting for your fear. As you live, and you die, what will you leave behind?

Over ten years in the making, Rogue Artists Ensemble’s Wood Boy Dog Fish will be a visual feast, combining masked and unmasked actors, highly expressive physical performance, dance, interactive sets, multiple puppetry traditions, projected media, sophisticated special effects ,and illusions.

Wood Boy Dog Fish is made possible in part by grants from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, the Jim Henson Foundation and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
