-- Charm and simplicity are ideas that playwright Greg Banks wanted to bring the story of Pinocchio back to. The director and I found this approach enlightening, with Jen's drive exploring the potential energy of the everyday object. My process took us to a playground of found materials, loosely based in a raw theatre space, allowing for the most basic objects to become powerful acting tools, and allowing audiences of children to explore along with the actors.
