Chicago Puppet Fest presents:

Andy Manjuck and Dorothy James: Bill’s 44th

January 25-27, 2022

The streamers are strung, the punch has been spiked, and the cake is just waiting to be eaten. Now all Bill has to do is wait for his guests to arrive. But waiting is hard. RSVP now for Bills’ 44th, an original comedy by Brooklyn-based artists Andy Manjuck and Dorothy James, two beloved puppeteers who together create one very worried protagonist. Many styles of puppetry, raucous balloons, and a cheeky piece of crudité all collide in this “poignant, comic puppet play…as much about the ingenuity of the mind as it is about loneliness.” (New York Times Critic’s Pick)

With special support from Cheryl Henson
