Scandinavian American Theater Company (SATC) presents the American Premiere of Jokum Rohde's play Pinocchio's Ashes. Check out the production photos below!
Pinocchio's Ashes tells a gripping story filled with melancholy, poetry and dark humor. It is set in the city of Kongstad, where a national ban has been imposed on art and culture. Judge Wolff enforces the ban by ordering severe punishments of those secretly practicing art. When an informant finds a Pinocchio doll in the workshop of local cabinet-maker Werner Brown, he reports the crime to Wolff, who sentences Brown to have his right hand cut off. Suddenly a crime wave washes over Kongstad. In the decadent and paranoid universe Rohde has created, Wolff and the other characters become human wrecks.
