THREE MEN IN A BOAT + MONTY

Adapted from Jerome K. Jerome's novel

Directed and designed by Anastasia Damani

 

The classic comedy adapted for the small screen to keep the show going even during the pandemic. I puppeteered my soft animal Bruno for the role of Montmorency, the fox terrier. It was bittersweet to be working with my theatre family from Kolkata, brought together by The Red Curtain International, from the comfort of my dorm room in Grinnell. The cast, crew and the audience were spread across Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia! Original artwork for Zoom virtual backgrounds allowed the cast to be in the same "set."
