I’ve found myself talking with people about Give Us Good, by great American playwright and resident genius Pam Mandigo.
This was the play that Pam wrote when I asked her to write “a Victorian roadtrip bromance with puppets.”
I feel like this play is … like if Pam took my soul and put it into a play.
We staged a little workshop production in the Vogels’ back yard, but we haven’t ever done a full production of it. You’ll note, no puppets (we used rhythm instruments to create the monsters instead). If you’re interested in hiring me to direct this for an actual theater, let me know and we’ll send you the script.
Here are some production and rehearsal photos from the summer of 2012.
