Presented by Sandbox Theatre; Created by the Ensemble
on the Boss Stage

Theatres in Residence: Girl Friday Productions, Bandbox Theatre, Theatre Pro Rata

Sandbox brings rich, visual storytelling to an all new ensemble-created exploration of Karel Čapek’s 1936 sociopolitical sci-fi tale of corruption, selfishness and absurdism. Told with Sandbox’s signature stylized design, movement and language, War With the Newts promises a sprawling, sharp-witted commentary on profit-first economies, the dangers of pride and nationalism, and a stern warning of our self-destructive nature.


Project Leads: Ryan Hill* and Tim Donahue*
Directed by Peter Heeringa*
Assistant Direction & Stage Management by Kristi Ditmarson
Costume Design by Mandi Johnson and Kathy Kohl
