The Education of a Donkey
Written for Eulenspiegel by playwright Rebecca Gilman, this story is adapted from a tale first published in 1500. It features the company’s namesake, Till Eulenspiegel, a stuffy University Rector, and a lovable donkey. Full of wordplay, it follows Till as he tricks the Rector by teaching a donkey to read. It's performed with a cast of beautifully crafted hand puppets and rod puppets, a block-printed, Medieval looking set, and the original live music of Ron Hillis.
