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.
