Beyond the Beanstalk

Das Puppenspiel takes a step beyond the familiar "Jack and the Beanstalk" to present a series of tales handed down by storytellers over many years. Originating in England and later coming to America and the Appalachian region, "The Jack Tales" feature simple, but clever, Jack, who lands himself into all kinds of adventures in his travels. Large beautifully crafted 'bunraku' style puppets and traditional folk music combine to bring new life to this storytelling tradition.
