Ship of Fools Jessica Scott

Ship of Fools Trailer

Ship of Fools ran Oct 12-22, 2016 in the Dorothy B Wiliams Theatre.

About the show

A collision of puppetry, movement, and live vocals with an electric political charge, Ship of Fools reflects and distorts the supposed relationship between women and madness. Drawing inspiration from poignant words and powerful moments ranging from Marilyn Monroe’s diary entries to acceptance speeches by female celebrities, and with only 20 seats available per night, Ship of Fools is a uniquely intimate, topsy-turvy journey that unabashedly spotlights women’s voices.
