An adaptation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Polaroid Stories tells the tales of street kids. Intertwining mythology with stories of homeless youth, this play will leave you contemplating: If you change the way your story is told, can you change your life?
2013 Capital Fringe Festival
Blind Pug Arts Collective
Dir. Jonelle Walker
"Polaroid Stories is brutally good .... Blind Pug’s ensemble doesn’t simply invite you to watch; they tie you by the ankle and drag you behind for the ride. The audience is left wanting less, not more, but only because the actors have done their jobs so very well. Steel yourself and strap in ... a solid pick for anyone’s Fringe agenda."
"The production I saw was shorter than expect, but the show ran so smoothly under Jonelle Walker’s confident direction that a missing cast member and ending 25 minutes early seemed completely irrelevant .... Blind Pug Arts Collective’s debut is truly remarkable for its boldness, its complexity, and its spellbinding effect."
