Rebel Playhouse presented a revival run of their NYC premiere production OLD TURTLE AND THE BROKEN TRUTH, with a book by Catherine Bush, music and lyrics by Dax Dupuy, and based on the book by Douglas Wood. Directed and choreographed by Sarah Sutliff with musical direction by Dax Dupuy, OLD TURTLE AND THE BROKEN TRUTH began performances on Friday, September 15th for a limited engagement through Sunday, September 17th. Rebel Playhouse's production transported audiences into the faraway world of the Old Turtle and Little One in this immersive, musical adventure.

In OLD TURTLE AND THE BROKEN TRUTH, a truth falls like a star from the sky and breaks into two pieces. When the villagers discover only half of the truth, it causes so many problems that Little One, a brave young girl, decides to search for the missing half. With the help of Old Turtle, and many animal friends, Little One is able to mend the broken truth and make it whole again - "you are loved...and so are they" - creating a better world for everyone. OLD TURTLE AND THE BROKEN TRUTH is powerful allegory about accepting and welcoming differences, which will resonate with children and adults alike, particularly at a time when the world is doing otherwise. (Recommended for ages 6 and up.)
