The Mettawee River Theatre Company presents COMMUNICATIONS FROM A COCKROACH – Archy and the Under Side, drawn from the Archy and Mehitabel sketches written in the 1920’s by noted humorist and poet Don Marquis. Archy is a free-verse poet reincarnated as a cockroach who expresses himself by jumping on the keys of Don Marquis’ typewriter, and Mehitabel is an alley cat with the soul of Cleopatra. They and their lowlife acquaintances face the bewildering challenges of the modern world with humor and a sturdy spirit of determination. The performance incorporates wide array of puppet critters operated by actors in full view of the audience - from fleas, tarantulas and crickets, to an ancient Egyptian mummy - a colorful population from the nooks and crannies of early 20th century New York. Location: Follow signs on the grounds. See website or call the Arboretum at 518-875-6935 for alternate location in case of storm.
