The Feeder

The Feeder is a short solo tabletop puppetry piece that explores the unintended consequences of a complicated relationship when the surviving partner of a gainer and feeder couple is on the run after accidentally feeding his spouse to death.

I wrote, developed, and performed The Feeder during the National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in 2015 and have subsequently performed it at the Echo Theatre in Portland and Dynasty Typewriter in Los Angeles.
