RAPUNZEL IN SUBURBIA

An imaginative play by Kim Carpenter shown at the Marionette Theatre in the The Sailors’ Home, Sydney, in 1982.
Filmed (and edited) in full.

The play is a fascinating collage of images, words and music based on Dorothy Hewettbook of poems of the same name, using puppetery with cleaver set design by Carpenter.
