The shows description was as follows:

Followed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, haunted by a bloodthirsty execution of a lawbreaking pachyderm, and inspired by a mysterious woman from a century earlier, Albert Billows escapes to the past in order to change the course of human history and finally do something useful with his life. 

Zach Dorn and co-creator Murphi Cook put on one amazingly delightful romp. Using self manipulated LED lights, closed circuit video projection, rod puppets and a great text.

It was so much fun. I really didn’t know what to expect with a title like that. Here are some photographs from the show. If it comes your way…SEE IT!
