A Compendium of Lost Things

A man collects stories of lost keys and dreams gone astray, wayward wallets and absent loved ones, abandoned playthings and misplaced memories. A troupe of players pluck tales from his compendium and weave them together, moving from song to puppetry to physical theatre to naturalism, finally focusing in on fractured voices of those who have lost nearly everything. Bear Pit Theatre use verbatim transcripts from ordinary souls telling of losses ranging from the comically banal to the profoundly moving and drive us to consider, in this whirling consumerist world, what it is we really value.
