"Doc Foster's Twisted Tales: A Puppet Show for Grown-Ups" is described as "wickedly macabre," using puppets and live, creepily costumed actors to spin stories of "intrigue, love, betrayal and the occasional murder."
The show premiered earlier this year at the University of Connecticut, where Shane C.S. McNeal was in the graduate Puppet Arts Program.
Doc Foster and his ghoulish friends now swarm into Sea Tea Comedy Theater, 15 Asylum St., Hartford, for a single performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12. Tickets are $15. 860-578-4TEA, seateaimprov.com.
