Boy walks down the aisle of his small hometown church carrying the front left-hand corner of his dad's coffin. Boy almost dies but is saved by 7-foot kangaroo. Boy sets sunflowers on fire in shopping cart (names it ‘love’), cuts kite string (names it ‘grief’), plays scarecrow in cloud of Christmas beetles (names it ‘hope’). A show that examines how life is often a battle between storyteller and the events being told, how language deceives us and how poetry can make it beautiful.
Beetle Prayer is part comedy show, part poetry set; a theatrical production that kicks you in the heart and tickles your ribs.
