Opening January 17. Oobleck's 2001 production of Mickle Maher's "Tedium" was called an "unassuming gem" by Justin Hayford in the Chicago Reader. Now, we are pleased as Punch & Judy that Daniel Kerr-Hobert & The Neo-Futurists, in a co-production with Oobleck, are staging a brand-new version for the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival.
