Innocent When You Dream is a one-man show featuring puppets, masks, physical comedy and song which tells the epic but intimate story of one man stuck in a place he never wanted to be. It was written by and stars Zeb West, who was inspired by the characters of Captain Ahab and Don Quixote.
He uses those two characters, both larger-than-life and delusional in their own ways, to explore the idea of self honesty and the overcoming of personal despair.
The story takes place entirely within the belly of a whale, where our hero Jonah has spent his time reading Moby Dick and Don Quixote, constructing a puppet sidekick, and thinking about his recent heartbreak. As an audience member, you'll join him inside the whale and hear his tale.
