About the Show
Part of Clubbed Thumb's Summerworks 2018 series, this new comedy centers around a troop of dedicated shoe store workers.
Blessed with the can-do American spirit, the workers embark on a madcap odyssey of personal (employer-mandated) expansion. But when "work is your life" and systems breakdown, all that remains is you, some nachos, and the truth.
“A classic shaggy dog story. Or rather, shaggy bear...In its opening scenes, ‘Tin Cat Shoes’ may put you in mind of a stretched-out sketch...But Ms. Harnetiaux is following her own System, which involves dismantling our pathetic trust in all systems...With a lesser cast and design team the ingredients of ‘Tin Cat Shoes’ might not seem quite as fresh or tasty. But it’s hard to resist the eccentric top spin that these performers so happily put on their lines.”
