Presenting Théâtre de la Pire Espèce, Quebec’s famed Object Theatre company
In a mythical America, Jimmy Jones reveals the stories and disappointments of his father in the middle of cornfields and legends. It is the story of an unusual father.
Featuring masterful table-top puppetry, this Object Theatre piece was created in May 2016 by four actors during a Théâtre de la Pire Espèce collective laboratory devoted to short forms. The show has been loved and acclaimed by audiences and reviewers at several festivals in both Canada and France.
