Happenstance Theater's new work is inspired by medieval imagery and archetypes collected from the works of Hieronymous Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, the Major Arcana of the Tarot, and reinterpretations of religious and alchemical art.


Drawing parallels between our current moment and the "dark ages," the ensemble explores foolishness, mystery, mortality and absurdity. Accompanied by live, rustic and angelic music, puppetry, movement and minimal text.


Like a ship of fools, this pod of eccentrics will drift into the world to bring delight, share hopes and fears, find a way forward, and then parade away. 

This production is generously sponsored by John J. Shields, Dirk Keaton in honor of Sofya Leonova, Holly Hassett, and Dick Kovar.

This production would also not have been possible without the help of our company angel, Nancy Rodrigues.

"All of the role-juggling performers prove themselves to be adepts of the deadpan, the sidelong glance, the freeze and the pregnant pause."
