Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes

Overview

Blind Summit Theatre
Directed by Mark Down
Puppet by Nick Barnes

Moses is a cantankerous three-man-operated puppet with a cardboard head that lives on a table. He wants to tell you an epic story about God and Moses, life and death, and puppetry—but he gets easily distracted. In the ilk of Tommy Cooper and Eddie Izzard, this table-top philosopher and comedian is the funniest piece of cardboard you will ever meet. Winner of a Fringe First award for this show, Blind Summit Theatre has received international acclaim for its brand of puppetry, earning the position of puppet directors for the London Olympic Opening Ceremonies in 2012; they were in Charleston last season creating the visual dimension of the Festival’s US-premiere production of The Little Match Girl (2016). The Table occupies a welcoming space between contemporary humor and historical reference, yielding a performance that is “dazzling” (The Scotsman), “astonishingly accomplished” (The Telegraph), and “brilliantly funny” (Time Out).
