Comparable to an episode of Rugrats on LSD, Mr. Marmalade centres around Lucy, aged four, and her abusive relationship with her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade—a violent, degenerate, sex-obsessed drug-addict. Through its darkly comic lens, the play explores the way in which children are being socialized and sexualized at a younger and younger age in our media-inundated culture.
This promenade-style production is staged inside an actual kindergarten classroom. The audience roams the space alongside the performers, and selects their own vantage point from which to watch the story, and drink their juice box.
