"Puppetry is a horribly dangerous thing," playwright, director and puppet-master extraordinaire Torry Bend has noted. "It's even more dangerous than theater, because it's easier for puppetry to go really wrong." Bend's new production, produced by StreetSigns Center, is her last local show before she leaves Duke's theater studies faculty for the University of Minnesota in the spring. It's based in part on an earlier community-based project, Dear Stranger, in which Bend left a series of anonymous letters in public places. In a mélange of video, music, puppetry and theater, a far-too-frequent flyer finds something unexpected beneath her tray table: a beating heart, contained in a letter that bears a return address. What follows promises to be a parable for our disconnected times. Jon Haas' video preview is at http://vimeo.com/108205681. 8:15 p.m. Thurs.–Sat. Oct. 16–Nov. 1 and Weds. Oct. 29; 2 p.m. Oct. 25, Oct. 26 and Nov. 1, $5–$20, 703 Foster St., 919-682-3343, www.manbitesdogtheater.org. —Byron Woods
