Move over, Avenue Q: there’s a new puppet in town. Flame-haired, foul-mouthed Tyrone, star of Robert Askins’ semi-autobiographical farce, is a nightmarish creation, but a necessary release for cowed Texas teen Jason, struggling with the death of his father. Mother Margery focuses on Christian puppet ministry rather than addressing their grief, but the diversionary tactic fails when Tyrone switches from Bible stories to voicing Jason’s repressed feelings: lust for fellow student Jessica and anger at his hypocritical authority figures.
