Lost socks find their way

HAVE you ever wondered where lost socks go?

A new play created and performed by Penelope Lowther answers such a question.

"The premise of the play is that washing machines are portals, and socks travel to another dimension to fulfil their wishes of a better life," Ms Lowther said.

The land across the portal (washing machine) gives the play its title, Yarnia: Where Lost Socks go to Dream.

It is a puppet show with all seven characters being played by the Brisbane performer.

The main character in Yarnia is Solo, the lost sock, and follows Solo's quest to find his dream before being unravelled by the wicked sock monster.

"While in the magic portal - the washing machine - Solo is separated and finds himself lost, cast out and washed up on the shores of Yarnia.

"This is a land where socks go to re-dream, re-imagine and recycle into wild, brave and beautiful new creatures," Penelope Lowther said.

One of the characters in the play was a business sock, always busy and in a hurry, and it becomes a superhero sock at the other side of the portal.

"Yarnia is a sock puppet show with heart," she said.
