Theatre (solo show, new writing)

Dates, Times and Prices


Sander Klaus is an underage soldier in America's Civil War. He loses a leg in 1863 ā€“ he's 16 years old. Like many bewildered teens he finds his way to New York City, where he struggles to live a normal life on the Lower East Side. A one-legged kid with PTSD in Manhattan wouldn't raise an eyebrow in 1863. But then his flashbacks come ā€“ and when he has them, there are toys. Everywhere. A story of youth, love, loss... and magic. Directed by Jenny Mercein.
