Made Local

City Theatre and PigPen Theatre Co.


“It’s like watching child geniuses at play.”

The New Yorker

The ensemble PigPen Theatre Co., much like their captivating performances, defy simple explanations. They’re a band, they’re a theatre company, they’re individually artists, directors, musicians, storytellers, puppeteers, and all around magic makers. Join City Theatre, Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures, and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in welcoming this band of creatives home to Pittsburgh for the local debut of their award-winning play, The Old Man and The Old Moon (Nov. 11-Dec. 3 at City Theatre). In an evening of storytelling and song, they’ll explore their creative process and give a sneak peek into the magical world of PigPen Theatre Co. Perfect for curious students and adults alike.

The Old Man and The Old Moon
November 11 – December 3, 2017

Who keeps the moon shining bright? A mysterious disappearance sends the Old Man charged with that task on an epic adventure in this swirling tale of memory and love, set to a wildly imaginative indie-folk soundtrack performed live. A one-of-a-kind theatrical experience, The Old Man and The Old Moon enchants audiences of all ages with spellbinding storytelling, ingenious puppetry, and the transformational cast of seven Carnegie Mellon alumni who are PigPen Theatre Co.
