Figure Theatre’s “King Matt the First” looks at entering into adulthood in today’s complicated world of many meanings, contexts and points of view. Maturity, battling one’s own weaknesses, chasing dreams and the taste of defeat – all of these are part of becoming an adult. But we know that adults sometimes make bad decisions and have to deal with the consequences. Matt’s story asks what will happen if everything is NOT fine in a world where the pressure to succeed can be overwhelming? Figure Theatre’s characteristic shadow puppetry beautifully conveys the challenges of growing up and the fragility of our pursuit of happiness.
