Sticks + Bones tells the story of a mountaineer in the Pacific Northwest who, after falling from a great height, finds herself at a crossroads in a dusty, arid land. As she fends off the perils of this strange place, she must make a deal with a stranger at the crossroads if she ever wants to leave. Blending puppetry, storytelling and live blues guitar, this multidisciplinary two-hander draws on worldwide mythologies to explore an uncanny world in the landscape between life and death.

Sticks + Bones

star star theatre—Tom Hendry Warehouse

I’ve found it! That hidden gem, with no buzz, that brings you joy as you stumble upon it and remember why taking a chance is a good thing. This was everything you want in a Fringe play. It was magical and mysterious, telling the tale of a girl mountaineer, lost in the wilds of BC and forced to make a deal with the devil. Puppetry was used to tell the tale and was masterful and playful. Two actors helped propel the story with interludes of acoustic guitar. The audience was most appreciative and hopefully they will spread the word. This charming piece needs to be seen by more. Bear in mind the huge capacity of this venue. If you want to be assured of a seat and see something amazing, this is it!
