Best of 2011!

Trouble Puppet is honored, much much, to have made it onto two of The Austin Chronicle's Best of 2011 lists. Wayne Alan Brenner included our latest show in his Top 10 Arts Events of 2011, calling Riddley Walker "as compelling and enigmatic as a Eusa Show among the muck and mire of Inland." And Adam Roberts, in his Top 10 Notable Theatrics of 2011 calls our other 2011 mainstage show, The Jungle, "a riveting evening of puppetry."

Trouble Puppet is very saddened by the December 13, 2011, death of Russell Hoban, who helped us create our production of his novel Riddley Walker. He was a brilliant man and a good friend to Trouble Puppet.
