A reimagining of the 1968 film in the style of Victorian Toy Theatre, through the medium of virtual theatre.
An astronaut crew crash-lands on an unfamiliar planet in the distant future and are soon enslaved by a society where grapes have evolved into speaking creatures with human-like intelligence. This award-winning, Victorian Toy Theatre reimagining of the ’68 sci-fi film is presented as a multi-media, live-in-person event. Covid tests and wearing of masks are required to attend.
If you had told me, say, a year ago, that would be watching a live toy puppet theatre production of a play based on "Planet of the Apes," I would have tossed you out the window. If, however, you had said the production was created and featured the talent of Peter Marino, I would have put the date in my calendar - in ink.
