Cosmic Events Are Upon Us

After the fall of Imperial Russia, the Romanovs have become the stuff of legend. They are painted as monsters – or saints – or children’s cartoons. Using original source material, this documentary play tells the real story of the people at the center of a revolution. What happens when one family can change the fate of the whole world?

For more information:

The play is inter-cut with shadow puppet vignettes that are housed inside a pop-up book. There are also mobile shadow puppet silhouettes on dowels.
