“Mabel’s Wayback Machine” a variety show
organized by Good Stuff House, the collaborative project of Kayce Bayer and Chris Lin
hosted by The Op Shop 3 in Hyde Park
Synopsis: Mabel Stark, world famous tiger trainer from the 1920s, hosted a variety show based around the ideas of improbable histories and hyperbolic figures. With a handmade time machine that doubled as a players’ stage, Mabel traveled through time in an effort to prevent her true love’s death. Along the way, she discovered an odd cast of characters who shared their stories through word, song, sound, and movement.
