A solo horror play with no blood and no death, INNOCENCE tells the story of Paige Paige, the internationally prominent puppeteer responsible for the wildly popular children's television character, Clumsy the six-year-old white elephant, and Paige's bond - and eventual obsession - with a twelve-year-old co-star.
