Leap Year Pudding is a shadow puppetry play that tells the story of a Marcus, a black teenager, who starts a work placement at a King Street bakery. When he meets Kimmy, the night shift supervisor, a friendship grows between them and Marcus begins a discovery of both his ancestry and his future.

The play will be performed by the students of Oasis Alternative High School’s Arts and Social Change program, including drummers from their African Liberation unit. Located in downtown Toronto, the Arts & Social Change Program aims to re-engage students not only in school, but also in the community at large. These three public performances at the Factory Theatre follow Clay & Paper’s month-long residency at Oasis. The evening will also include performances by local guest artists.
