The key to getting this show is managing to use your imagination to the extent that you believe in random objects as a medium for telling a story.

If you cannot, there is a thin plot about a theatre director seeking closure in connection with an actor father that he never knew.

For some reason, Mark Down as Luke Alexander lopes around like a chimpanzee and then conducts a “masterclass” for a duo in puppeteers' masks. The pair manipulate found objects in an attempt to tell the tale.

Blind Summit is one of the country's leading puppetry companies. What they can do with puppets beggars belief. Unfortunately, a puppet company without puppets may strike those failing to suspend enough disbelief as a mystery.
