Balloonacy - Early Childhood - Imagination Stage

Balloonacy

July 6–August 4, 2019

Written by Barry Kornhauser

Remount directed by Meg Lowey

Nothing can go right for the character of the old man, whose days are gray and dreary until he is visited by a friendly red balloon. Reminiscent of the silent films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the playwright has imagined the man as an older version of the boy in the movie The Red Balloon, now grown up and grown old, having forgotten his youthful adventure. That is until the red balloon returns to the rescue!
