The Wars Of Heaven, Part I says
Opens 4/30!
God makes heaven and hell. . . . Who will remake them?

Angels and demons are among us, serving God and Lucifer, fighting in our wars, upholding an ancient order. What happens when some of them begin to doubt the rules?

Part I of Trouble Puppet's epic three-part tale is a spectacular Miltonic saga, told through tabletop and shadow puppetry. (Parts II and III are to come in 2016 and 2017. Each show stands alone as a complete dramatic work.)

The show is created by the company (winner of a dozen B. Iden Payne Awards and a mainstay of Chronicle Top-10 lists) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, and Hyde & Jekyll.

April 30–May 17, 2015 (Thu–Sat shows at 8 pm, Sun shows at 6 pm)
Tickets are $12–20 at
