Rough House Theatre Co., Links Hall, UChicago and Chicago Puppet Fest present:

Nasty, Brutish & Short (Wknd 1)

Hit the fan-favorite late show to take your puppetry experience from the highest heights to the best kind of lows. Enjoy Chicago’s long-standing puppet cabaret with your host Jameson and somewhat furry friends for a naughty night of raucous, raunchy, dark, sassy, sad and mostly hilarious puppet theater. The best part? Fancy out-of-towner puppeteers are invited to join local legends in a bawdy night of revelry followed by friendly unwinding.

Jan 19 Performers:
