Russell Hoban's postapocalyptic world of humanity struggling from the depths of destruction – a world of violence, visions, and traveling puppet shows, where wild dogs run rampant and ancient engines hold the secret to salvation or further despair – all of this is brought to the stage by Trouble Puppet Theater's Connor Hopkins and his cadre of brilliant puppeteers, with an original score by Justin Sherburn. Complex, confounding, braided from all the strands of history a broken future can bear, this one ain't for the kiddies, it's for the grown-ups with a brain and an appreciation of the strange. Recommended. Sept. 29-Oct. 16. Wed.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $10-20.
