When Wendell discovers that both his wife and their beloved tree have vanished from the backyard, he must venture into The Wilds and face its mysteries to bring them home. Charming and profoundly moving, this wordless award-winning show features WONDERHEADS’ signature masks along with dazzling puppetry, and moves its audiences to both laughter and tears.
Wonderheads’ work has been described as living animation; their masks come to life in a way that must be seen to be believed, and their stories reach profound, funny and heartwarming depths that you wouldn’t think possible of masks and puppets.
Don’t miss this spellbinding show that the CBC describes as “Captivating and magical” and the Winnipeg Free Press as “Nothing short of exceptional.”
