Direction & Puppet Design......Dane Eissler

Produced by A Dead Whale Productions

Presented by Rough House Theatre as part of their

Nasty, Brutish + Short Puppet Cabaret

Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror story of obsession, guilt, and murder is flipped on its head in this raucous puppet short. The (late) Old Man's heart erupts from the floorboards in a panic... but instead of talking about its recent murder, he kvetches and rants about whatever pops into his mind. A structured improvisation, The Tell-All Heart was part puppet play and part talk show, until the very last pump of blood.
