The Devil You Know- ShowSeptember 26, 2014
What happens when a monster gets loose from under a woman’s bed and wreaks havoc on society? Bedlam ensues on the playground of a four-poster bed and the battlefield of the bedroom floor.
Writer-performer-constructor Allison Daniel unleashes multiple forms of puppetry, physical comedy, and acrobatics.
The show was created for grown-up audiences — it includes one or two brief PG-13 images and some subtly dark themes — but the younger amongst us will find it enthralling as well.
