The Pirat and the MoonThe Pirat and the Moon

BASED ON MOTIFS FROM THE CHILDREN'S BOOK BY DENNIS HASELEY

This shadow theatre puppet performance is placed in a church nave and the audience sail the wide oceans of the world on a pirate ship. The pirate plunders what he likes, steals other ships and takes their cargo—but despite his hardest efforts, he cannot reach the far away Moon high up in the sky. He sees the unconquerable power of beauty, which stems not from possession, but rests instead on the yearning respect of the unattainable.
