A docent will talk about Berkeley Repertory Theatre's current production, 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips.

Kneehigh is back! The theatrical alchemists who brought us Tristan & Yseult and The Wild Bride return with a tender new coming-of-age tale that uncovers the secrets behind World War II’s D-Day landings. In the idyllic seaside village of Slapton, the lives of Lily, her family, and her fiercely independent cat Tips are barely touched by war…until American soldiers occupy their house and land. With swingin’ live music, enchanting puppetry, and signature stage sorcery, Emma Rice conjures a story of love, war, and prejudice that crosses borders both geographical and generational.
