Small Acts of Daring Invention, inspired by the life and work of Dare Wright, is an image rich, musically driven exploration of the space between this life and the next.  The play teases the realness of the unreal and investigates the endless resources of the imaginative realm. With one actress and four puppeteers,  Small Acts follows an unmoored woman, adrift in the isolation and fog of forgetfulness, towards an encounter with her long-lost companions – and life.

“A profound meditation on what New York City and the rest of the world has gone through in the past few years: a spectrum of emotion from abject grief to acceptance.”

“This theatrical event should be seen and heard both for its expansive intellectual reach and its extraordinarily immersive empathy.”
—Theatre Reviews from my Seat

“Mason Holdings’ haunting Hart Island epitomizes downtown, avant-garde performance at its best: cerebral, theatrical, scrupulously researched, and bursting with heart.”
—Theatre Is Easy

“Powerful and Beautifully Staged.”
