Baker's Dozen: 12 Angry Puppets showing locally

Saturday, August 30, 2014   by: Staff



Adam Francis Proulx and Sault Pride present - Baker's Dozen: 12 Angry Puppets

We all know the story of the Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker, right?

But now, rub-a-dub-dub, the Baker, has been found dead in the tub, his husband the Butcher stands accused of murder, and no one knows what’s happened to the Candlestick Maker.

A single puppeteer transforms one puppet into twelve jury members, each struggling with our flawed judicial system, their own personal problems, their gnat-like attention spans, and their intolerance of other people (and of lactose).

A man's future rests in their hands in this one-man, one-puppet courtroom 'dramedy'.

Baker's Dozen is the third collaboration between actor/puppeteer Adam Francis Proulx (Avenue Q, Songs of Sinatra), director Nicole Stamp (TVO, Second City), and veteran puppeteer Mike Petersen (Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth) after they met working on the first Canadian production of Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q, in a critically-acclaimed production.

The show had its workshop production at the Toronto Festival of Clowns and its premiere at the Toronto Fringe Festival 2014.
