“What I saw threw me for a loop, knocked me back, and took me down a peg, all at once. This was crazily inventive, beautifully adapted, serious, moody theatre. Not only did my 5 year old sit rapt for the entire 45 minutes, so did I —it was pure magic.”

Ruff is a 30-minute theatrical experience that takes place in a 10’x10′ tent, beginning and ending with a beach-themed play session.  The artistic adventure is told through puppetry, music, diorama, shadow-play, language exploration and a surprising amount of sand.  Ruff was created to specifically engage 0-5 year olds and their grown-ups.

A fox and a wild boar can’t bring themselves to tell a dayfly that her life only lasts a single day. The three set out to complete a lifetime of accomplishments before the sun sets. A stunning play with an inevitable ending, Only A Day is funny, sad, and thought-provoking. For all audiences.
