The Hanukkah Cow

A Fractured Fables Hanukkah Special.

This puppet adaptation of “The Hanukkah Bear” begins when a hibernating cow is awoken by the delicious smells of latkes and immediately goes in search of the source. An old, poor-sighted woman hears a knock at her door. She thinks it’s the Rabbi arriving for a special Hanukkah meal. The strange mooing sounds the “Rabbi” makes causes her to worry for his health, but she happily feeds him all the latkes he wants.

Performed 12-21-14 at Bank Street Bookstore. Puppeteer: Rebecca Migdal. Accompanist: Andy Laties. Camera: Nere Kapiteni.
