Two figures draped in colorful garments carefully step across the stage, picking up toys lying on the ground.A black-clad form enters the stage, carrying a puppet of a little boy with bright red hair.That means taking up big questions in a way that kids will understand. The plays LPT performs tackle everything from throwing away toys to pollution and violence because, as the theater director explained, children are not blind or deaf. It's unclear whether or not the kids really understand the themes being staged, as Anaheed, a mother and theatergoer, said referring to her young son at the "Karakeeb" performance."Karakeeb" centers on two children who come from different backgrounds, resulting in different attitudes toward things.Salma, who lives down the street, has very few toys, and only one that really matters.The Lebanese Puppet Theatre will wrap up the year with the production that started it all.LPT will stage a different play each Saturday at Dawar al-SHAMS.
