Asa Nodelman created gothic horror puppet show The Clock in the Lobby for last year's fringe. Inspired by the success of that Best of Fest show — and by early 20th-century horror writer H. Lovecraft's references to a mysterious tome called The Necronomicon — Winnipeg's Nodelman follows that act with this big bang of a Biblical sci-fi chiller.
A cast of 13 marionettes traces the occasionally gory misadventures of over-curious futuristic protagonist Abdolos Hazirinon, whose punishment for reading a forbidden cryptic text is cruel and unusual by any measure.
Horribly — and somewhat gleefully — disfigured, Abdolos gets a one-way ticket to outer space, but still manages to discover the secrets of all human life on Earth, which he spills in the titular tome. Four puppeteers, accompanied by local musician Erik Larsen's spooky ambient music, help unravel Nodelman's bizarro string theory, which suggests that if a little knowledge is dangerous, a lot is fatal.
The otherworldly marionettes and props are works of genius — and yes, it's evil genius.
However, the visual power of Nodelman's creations is sometimes diluted by excessive showmanship on stage. A trio of primordial beings — whose appearance gives rise to a truly impressive birth-of-man scene — wow the crowd with their first water-ballet dance across the stage.

Given that the mechanics of the show already require a leisurely pace in the storytelling, a little brevity on that score wouldn't hurt.
Still, it's hard to complain about getting too much of a good thing. In De Waal's first story, Rabbit is crying because a scary creature with a very big voice is hiding in her house. But this isn't just any creature — this animal claims to eat trees and step on elephants!
How ever will Rabbit get her house back when all the other animals of the veldt are too frightened to do anything? And just what kind of creature is that hiding in the house?
The second story concerns not animals, but children. Little Tembhi is left in the care of her older brother. She slips out the back door and loses her doll in the river. She follows the doll right to the edge of the forest where a horrible man a cannibal who eats children!
Can Tembhi's brother get her before it's too late? De Waal will tell you — but only if you promise not to "scream like a baby! The man just knows how to tell a story. Arrive early — the very first show was almost completely sold out. Great for all kids up to age DIY Nukeproofing: A New Dig at 'Datamining' 3AlarmLampScooter Hacker.
Does the thought of nuclear war wiping out your data keep you up at night? Don't trust third party data centers? Simply put, it's taking a well-known person from Real Life history and using this person as a character in a work.
This does mean any work of that kind, whether it's Historical Fiction, a Hollywood History story, or a well researched and accurate biopic of events. Needless to say, there isn't necessarily any similarity in personality between the real person and the character in the story.
