Join us for a new children’s puppet piece created by La MaMa Resident Artist Jane Catherine Shaw. Mother goose has been taken in for questioning. During her interrogation many of the characters from the popular Rhymes come to life in a wall of picture frames that form the backdrop for the piece.

Jane Catherine Shaw is a longstanding La MaMa resident artist. She interweaves imaginative characters and stories to make one exciting piece of theatre for young audiences. Selected works include original pieces: Thirst: Memory of Water, The Lone Runner, Bed of Light, Universe Expanding, Folktales of Asia and Africa, and Follow the Wind: Tales From The New World.  She is the curator of La MaMa Puppet Slam.
