When I Put On Your Glove is a piece about belonging, memory and inter-generational dialogue. It is performed through puppetry, dance and spoken word and explores a daughter’s relationship to her father’s work, not just the form, but the actual pieces.  When I Put On Your Glove is built on the premise that puppets are containers of memory and it addresses universal questions of belonging, childhood, fear of loss, death and the complicated nature of navigating artistic legacy.  The passing of these puppets into new hands marks a pivotal moment of generational transition for Sandglass Theater as the voice of the past meets the voice of the present into the future.

Friday and Saturday July 7 and 8th at 7:00 pm
at our theater, 17 Kimball Hill Road in Putney, Vermont.

10 Minute Plays & Graceland


10 Minute Plays
Songs My Brother Sang
It’s the Jews

These plays explore the ways we react to diversity, featuring Muslim, Jewish, and gay/lesbian infused subjects and themes.  The hope is that these brief, powerful, and at times surprisingly humorous plays will shed new light on these issues as well as engage and entertain audiences.

by Ellen Byron and produced by Main Street Arts
Graceland is a heartwarming and humorous one-act story that addresses the true meaning of friendship.
