Frank, who is obsessed with cleanliness and order, is convinced that pigeons are plotting against him.

The Pigeoning is a darkly comedic yet heartfelt story that spins Bunraku-style puppetry and lo-fi special effects into an epic tale about the illusion of safety and control in the context of the end of the world.

A funny, dialogue-less performance that will enthrall school-age children and speak to adults, whether they are seasoned theatre-goers or newcomers.

Each performance is followed by a post-show dialogue with the artists, where audiences will also get to see the set and puppets, up close.
