The Doom That Came to Fiddle Creak (Marionette Puppet Play)

Deep in the shadowy reaches of the Appalachian Mountains lurk secrets so terrible it was not meant that men should know them. Foul abominations lie in wait, locked away in the in-between spaces Euclid dared not contemplate, aching to return to a world which once belonged to them, and one day will be in their grasp again...

"The CastIron Carousel seeks funding to stage an H.P. Lovecraft-themed marionette play entitled The Doom That Came to Fiddle Creak in Portland, Oregon in the fall of 2013. The audience will enjoy a fully realized marionette theater experience: a curtain will open revealing a magic window into a stage populated by intricately articulated marionettes animated by near-invisible strings."

So, they're running a kickstarter and need at least $3,000 more to make a really good run at it.

I'd really like to see more work like this done in puppetry! So, if you can spare a few coins, please consider it.
