BRATTLEBORO- Shoot the Moon Theater Company opens its 2017 season at the Hooker-Dunham Theater with a two-weekend run of “The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise.” Show times are 7:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, February 17 to 18, and February 24 to 25.

This dramatic-comedy by Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada made its New York City debut in 2014 with an English translation by Aya Ogawa.

Artistic director Joshua Moyse likens the play to absurdist classics such as Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot,” for its unconventional structure and brand of humor. Cast members Elias Burgess, Josh Goldstein, Colin Grube, Jennifer Moyse, and Xoe Perra play the group of nameless youngish and middle-aged characters searching for ways to make their lives better. Alistair Follansbee is the stage manager and Charlie Schneeweis provides original music.

General admission is $12 and reservations can be made in advance by calling (802) 254-9276. The Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery is located at 139 Main Street.
