Pontine Theatre to Bring A MEMORABLE MURDER to Great Small Work's Toy Theatre Festival, 6/15-16

Pontine Theatre has been invited to perform at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn NY as part of Great Small Work's International Toy Theatre Festival. The company will perform A Memorable Murder, a scene about the murders on Smuttynose, drawn from Pontine's original production, The Isles of Shoals: Eternal Sound of the Sea. Performances will take place 15 and 16 June.

Toy Theater (also called Paper Theater) was the rage in parlors across Europe and the Americas in the 19th century, a popular means of staging dramatic spectacles at home. But just as revolutions in print technology had brought Toy Theater into 19th-century homes, 20th-century advances in electronic media and mass culture led to the virtual extinction of this popular family entertainment.

Currently, Pontine is performing its newest work, The Common Heart: A Transcendental Revue, at its West End Studio Theatre, located at 959 Islington Street in Portsmouth, NH. The Common Heart runs Fridays at 8, Saturdays at 4, and Sundays at 2, through 12 May. Tickets are available online at www.pontine.org.
