Beulah’s Box (1987)


A Multi-Award Winning Show From Quicksilver Theatre


In the house of Q, where Beulah lives and works as general downtrodden dogsbody, Q, the greatest professor in the whole world, has locked up every language inside a box. Beulah is under pain of death to leave the box alone.

One day, however, when Q is away at a conference, Beulah’s curiosity get s the better of her and she opens up the box. And little by little…then faster and faster…its startling inhabitants begin to emerge.

Mad misunderstandings and comic communications follow. Laughter, quarrels and fun are in full swing when suddenly…shhh…Q is heard coming home!
