Yael Rasooley’s Paper Cut, is a one woman puppet show that she has toured world-wide. The story starts as a lonely secretary remains in the office after everyone else has gone home. From her little corner, using photos from old film magazines, she escapes into a work of daydreams. There she is a glamorous movie star from the 1940s and finds her ideal love at last. But as the story unravels, as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcock nightmare.
“Goat on a Boat is thrilled to present a puppet show for adults,” says Liz Joyce, Founder and Artistic Director for Goat on a Boat. “We are so lucky to have Yael Rasooley, such a talented international performer, share her award-winning show Paper Cut. Puppet shows aren't just for kids.”
“We are so pleased to be able to bring this new type of programming to Bay Street’s audience with Liz Joyce and Goat on a Boat. ” says Tracy Michell, Bay Street Theater Executive Director. “It’s also even more special to have it as part of International Women’s Day.”
