The Wars of Heaven, Pt. 1
by Trouble Puppet Theatre Company

Apr. 30 - May. 17, 2015

Angels and demons are among us, serving God and Lucifer, fighting in all our wars, upholding an ancient order. What happens when some of them begin to doubt the rules? 

Part I of Trouble Puppet's epic three-part tale is a spectacular Miltonic saga, told through tabletop and shadow puppetry. See the universe created and divided, the heavenly host and the fallen at work in humanity’s wars—and a conspiracy revealed between the millennia’s angelic and demonic foot soldiers. With a gorgeous original score by Justin Sherburn and members of the Convergence Vocal Ensemble.

Parts II and III are to come in 2016 and 2017. Each show stands alone as a complete dramatic work.

The show is created by the company (“one of the most revered theatre companies in the City” —Austin Chronicle, March 2014) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, and Hyde & Jekyll
