Two puppeteers meet for the first time inside Frelmetsch, a two-person puppet of a monstrous creature in a fantasy adventure film. Their task: find a way to join together to create this character in just five days of shooting, despite intensely cramped conditions, irritating personal habits and a growing attachment to this vile yet oddly human monster they’re trying to bring to life.

A fascinating exploration of workplace dynamics that have led these puppeteers to the point they're at with a deep desire to connect in the character. Well done! ”

As a puppeteer myself, I found Matthew hit the realities of the world spot on. The dialog is sparkling and fast paced, the characters are fascinating, and I thoroughly enjoyed this play! Highly recommend! ”

A hysterical and thoughtful look into how people try to connect in an oftentimes unfair and absurd world. The dialogue in this play is witty and charming, and I loved how the play the builds to the moments of silence, pure movement, and ultimately, cohesion. It's a love story, without being about romantic love. I would love to see this play staged.
