About

Stalk, a cutting edge modern musical, explores a young boy’s loss of innocence through fantasy world of Jack and the Beanstalk. Playwright and composer of the show, Stephen Gawrit, states about this new play: “Stalk started off as a strange dream, and has blossomed into a monumental moment of my life. Jack and the Beanstalk, since childhood, is one of my favorite fairy tales, but I didn’t just want to tell the story through spoken word. Surrealism, hyper-realism, folk music, and larger-than-life puppetry influence the adaptation of

Jack’s magical world to a contemporary setting complete with

modern problems. With these inspirational elements, the pieces of the puzzle began to weave together to create an incredible journey of poetry and song. My goal was to craft a work of theatre the audience could empathize and connect with, while allowing them the escape offered by a world of dreams.”
