The Amazing and Marvelous Cabinets of Kismet tells the story of Kismet, a puppet who lives contentedly in a crowded world of cabinets and drawers. When his home is destroyed, Kismet flees and finds himself in a strange new world made completely of paper, where he must adapt to his new environment. This production uses a unique combination of puppets made from recycled objects and paper to tell the story of a fantasy world that is visually unusual but perhaps not all that different from our own.
