@ 59E59 Theaters - Theater B

November 29 - December 24, 2023

A ship of fools adrift at sea.

They ask, “What do we do now?”

After an apocalypse, the search begins.


Characters from the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and archetypes from the Tarot are brought to life in this ingeniously staged production of theatrical alchemy using live music, physical comedy, puppetry, and so much more.


This pod of eccentrics will drift into the world to bring delight, share hopes and fears, and find a way forward. 


A dynamic medieval tapestry of pure theater…and it wouldn’t be the Middle Ages without a hellmouth, demons, and angels.

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