Two frogs, Mabel and Garry, are ridden with the monotony of living. Until Bill comes along... a metal puppet, full of life and in love with Mabel? Soon all three are bound together by an existential crisis. Can two frogs and a metal puppet escape the restless human condition?
You Are Frogs is an existential dark comedy inspired by the maddening lover found in Mud by Maria Irene Fornes. A reimagining of Mud's suffocations, anthropomorphized frogs and puppetry highlight the surreal domestic story about sex, sickness, and survival.
