Forget Me Not
RONNIE BURKETT THEATRE OF MARIONETTES | CANADA
AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE

Marionette master Ronnie Burkett (The Daisy Theatre, Sydney Festival 2018) returns with a powerful new work where each audience member plays a part in the story.

Welcome to The New Now, where written words are forbidden and putting pen to paper is a powerful act of defiance. For those determined to compose or read a declaration from the heart, there is a way – but first they must undertake a treacherous journey to a secret camp and find ‘She, The Keeper of the Lost Hand’, one of the last to retain the knowledge of reading and writing.  

Audience members join Burkett onstage for the entire performance, bringing to life their own unique puppet to portray a character and act as the chorus to the unfolding story.

Absurd, romantic, and provocative, Forget Me Not is a tender call-to-arms and a rich theatrical love letter to our better selves in these increasingly uncivilised times.

"Joyous...the brilliance of his writing and performance. [It's] a ceremonial experience that’s very hard to capture in words" – Toronto Star 

"A joyous (and frequently raunchy) form of resistance" – thestar.com
