Kate Crackerberry is based on a wonderful folk-tale from the Orkney Islands in Scotland and told in the style of the jack tales in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is about the love between two step-sisters, a sheep’s head, and a prince suffering under a fairy spell. When Anne is placed under an evil enchantment, her good, kind and clever sister Kate dedicates herself to find a cure. This leads the girls into the woods where they encounter a royal family with an ongoing problem. Kate uses her wits and courage to find a solution for both her sister and the prince, leading to a happy ending for everyone in the kingdom. Working with the compact team in a devised process, 4 multi-talented artists use image, puppet animation, movement, and music in a collaborative artistic process to create the stories, puppets, props and instruments for this production.
