Baker’s Dozen – Toronto Fringe 2014 Press Release

From Press Release


ADAM SQUARED PRODUCTIONS and the Toronto Fringe Festival presents…

We all know the story of Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker, right? But now, rub­a­dub­dub…the Baker has been found
dead in the tub, his husband the Butcher stands accused of murder, and no one knows what’s happened to the Candlestick Maker…
A single puppeteer transforms one puppet into twelve jury members, each struggling with our flawed judicial system, their own
personal problems, their gnat-­like attention spans, and their intolerance of other people (and of lactose). A man’s future rests in their hands in this one­-man, one-­puppet courtroom dramedy.
Baker’s Dozen is the third collaboration between actor / puppeteer ADAM FRANCIS PROULX (Avenue Q, Songs of Sinatra),
director NICOLE STAMP (TVO, Second City), and veteran puppeteer MIKE PETERSEN (Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth) after they met
working on the first Canadian production of Tony Award­ winning musical Avenue Q, in a critically­ acclaimed production:

“Adam Proulx, who inhabits the two male leads, is a big­​-voiced charmer who manages to differentiate two very different characters.” -Fab Magazine review of Avenue Q

“Delivers the goods… Proulx delivers [a] strong puppet performance.” -NOW Magazine review of Avenue Q
