The Dragon of Polish Hill

New Hazlett Theater, 6 Allegheny Square E, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, 15212

About This Event

The Dragon of Polish Hill tells the story of two neighborhood residents who were destined never to know each other until Stanley Onion, a 115-year-old man with dementia, and Willy James, a rabbit-eared performance artist, are brought together by a chance encounter. The circumstances that follow force Willy to consider his own values in light of their friendship. This performance explores cultures colliding in a changing urban neighborhood. 

The son of an embalmer dad and an elementary school teacher/quilt maker mom, Dave English logically grew up to be a puppeteer. A native of Pittsburgh, Dave currently lives in Polish Hill. He is the president of the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh and holds a BFA in Theatre & Puppetry from West Virginia University. Dave’s collaborator Will
is an artist, songwriter and puppeteer from Austin. He comes from a 40-year-old Texas tradition of marionettes, having cut his teeth at state fairs and massive holiday shows with World on a String puppet theater.
