The Devil You Know- Show

September 26, 2014

The Devil You Know- One Flea Circus from One Flea Circus on Vimeo.

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.
