The Lamp is the Moon
By Kirk Lynn
April 11–May 20, 2018
“I don’t like to nap but I do like to dream.”
Meet Shawn, a bright young girl with a head full of science and imagination, which makes naptimes particularly difficult. Today it’s her friend, Lamp, that despite having no cord and no bulb, triggers a wide awake adventure when it reveals its greatest dream is to learn to fly and become the moon. Launch into a voyage fit for mission control as Shawn and her lamp, with the guidance of the audience, escape another naptime and blast into space.
