GALAHAD’S FOOL : loss, renewal, and puppets
a realistic fantasy by Conrad Bishop & Elizabeth Fuller
A year after his co-creator Lainie’s death, an acerbic veteran puppeteer struggles to build a solo show. But what Albert Fisher intends as a lightweight spoof turns sharply personal, and he births a raw myth of loss. His aging, pot-bellied Galahad, bereft of youthful vision, launches a second mad quest for the Holy Grail. To follow, his wife secretly disguises herself as their frail, androgynous Fool. As the show evolves, Albert finds kinship with his grieving hero and opens to the risk of new love.
