"21 Ways to Make the World Last Longer" is a practical, hopeful, and simple tribute to the beauty of humanity.  This brand new puppet play for adults and mature youth is a 90-minute funny and dramatic sharing of the kooky and maybe necessary approaches to living on an endangered planet.
Sally is learning about the spring birds who visit in and around her small town in British Columbia; Peter is teaching his 97-year-old mother to take the bus in eastern Ontario; Laura remembers a disappointing Christmas; Greg is doing his best to avoid the internet; and Ross is meditating ... as fast as he can.  These are just five of the 28 puppet characters that you will meet in the documentary-style puppet production.
"21 Ways to Make the World Last Longer" is a new original production co-written by Cathy Stubington and James Fagan Tait, and directed by James Fagan Tait.  Core puppet makers and puppeteers Cathy Stubington and Zompopo Flores are joined by guest performers James Fagan Tait, Sarah May Redmond and Tom Jones (well known to Runaway Moon and Caravan Farm Theatre audiences) to bring this wonderful story to life.
Using the magic of Runaway Moon rod puppetry and an eclectic quintet of puppeteers, this production is sure to make you wonder, remember, and reflect.  Runaway Moon invites you to celebrate the small ways that regular folk make a difference in the world.
