Epic in a Box knows how to party 

Lohifi's teeny tiny tabletop show is travelling and your living room could be the next stage.

It's not Polly Pocket, it's a play.
  • It's not Polly Pocket, it's a play.

Chris Little and Theo Pitsiavas are two men who elevate child's play to a fun and funny art form. The creators of the Merritt Award-winning Grandma Noda's Tigers are back with another found-object play called Epic in a Box. This second play is interactive, inviting the audience into a pub in the imaginary Broach Islands where Little and Pitsiavas both play locals and manipulate the tiny plastic characters who live there. The hero (a spunky garden gnome) must learn to believe in himself in order to overcome the evil Baron (a truly twisted Beaver with a unique gift for torture) and win the Found Object World Cup. He's helped along the way by a morose cow, a lovely china figure and the spirit of his dead mother. Designed to be staged in people's homes, this play could also be named Great Party in a Box.

Next scheduled performance Friday October 28, Old Red Schoolhouse, Peggys Cove, 8pm, $20, 223-0991 or john@johnbeale.net. To book your own show email lohifivideo@gmail.com
