Sandglass Theater’s Rock the Boat, a touring puppet show for young audiences grades Pre-K through 5th but worth watching if you’re older, explores themes of refugees, inclusion and respectful curiosity. A poet in a boat, alone at sea, is stuck in a rut of writer's block. While observing his daily routines, he suddenly finds his home filling with new characters seeking shelter and safety. Through evocative visual scenes, we learn that each has fled some disaster: war, fire or flood. As the newcomers and the Poet navigate life together on the vessel, they meet conflict, generosity, kindness and questions about who each other are. The poet’s poems become richer and deeper and the unlikely collection of beings learns to steer threatening waters together.
