Experiencing Interruptions?

Yorick and the Devil's Dodecahedron

Yorick (as in "Alas, poor"), intrepid skull and genius inventor, struck off on his own after experiencing job dissatisfaction at the Globe Theatre. Building a crew of sentient mechanisms, outfitting a technologically illogical ship (the "Golden Hind-er") and attracting some very magical Eldritch Rats, he sails the seas of the Reasonable Facsimile of Earth with this stalwart band. In this adventure he is swept away into an alternate universe with some of his crew when they accidentally drift into the weirdly mysterious nautical zone known as the Devil's Dodecahedron.

Director Biography - Deb Ethier

I have at various times in my life been an artist, musician, writer, educator, history and vintage film buff, puppet maker and children's theatre director, finally tying them all together with stop-motion and mixed-media animation. "Rusty Bolt Theatre" and "Seat of the Pants Film Lab" are basically one-person, no-budget endeavours in which I wear all of the hats.
