Acclaimed performer Carlo Adinolfi plays Geppetto, aka G, in this heart-wrenching and hilarious tale of a poor Italian immigrant puppeteer whose life unravels when his closest companions, two well-worn puppets he created for his shows, begin to fall apart. After the passing of his beloved wife and fellow-puppeteer Donna, G and his puppets struggle to create a new play. But as his puppets begin to disintegrate and his own heart breaks, G must try fix them and heal himself so that the show, and his life, can go on. Drawing inspiration from Pinocchio, The Old Man and the Sea, and the inspiring true story of double-amputee Hugh Herr’s incredible return to rock climbing, Geppetto is an exploration of resilience and ingenuity in the face of loss and change.
