No credit is given in the program for the several Audrey IIs used in this production. Since it has previously been mounted at TheatreWorks and other Peninsula theater companies, it’s possible Foothill didn’t start from scratch. But although the plant puppets are very realistic and increasingly daunting as they grow larger, it’s surprising that the Venus Flytrap-type plant isn’t facing straight up rather than out toward the audience. As presented, Audrey II looks more like an alligator or shark head than a plant. In most productions the plant faces skyward, then turns down when it’s ready to open its mouth and eat something … err, someone. Nevertheless, the audience of youngsters and adults raptly followed its every movement and gave a collective gasp whenever another “tasty morsel” is consumed.
