ABOUT THE PLAY
A female journalist arrives at a monastery in Italy for a surprise interview with a reclusive killer. She is seeking the truth about his brutal murder of a young girl that captured the nation's attention almost 50 years prior. Now, on the eve of the young girl's canonization as a Catholic saint, unwanted questions spark unexpected answers, igniting a final confrontation that forces them both to face the demons of their past. NOTE: This play tells the true story of St. Maria Goretti and her murderer, Alessandro Serenelli. The play features some intense action and mature subject matter.
ABOUT THE VIDEO

Flatten the curve, fire up the imagination! An online, on-demand audio puppetry experience intertwining stories of the crossing of the Red Sea and the Trail of Tears.
Opening Saturday, March 21 at 7 pm (for World Puppetry Day) continuing through May 1
Wherever you are and whenever you want during this run, tune in to hear:
A 3500 year-old Jewish woman recounts her crossing of the Red Sea as a 6-year-old Cherokee boy bears witness to the Trail of Tears. Together, they fill in parts of history that often go missing. With the music by Greg Herriges, slide across centuries and continents to travel the rich emotional landscape from struggle to triumph. Directed by artist/activist Laurie Witzkowski and featuring images of the puppets, by photographer Bruce Silcox, puppetry artists Shari Aronson and Chris Griffith (Cherokee tribal member) weave a story inspired by their own ancestries.

FREE access for all Native American Tribal Members and people who live or work in Central Neighborhood in Minneapolis (thanks to a grant from CANDO).
