SOMEBODY LOVES YOU, MR. HATCH is a heartwarming puppet play that examines the effect that kindness can have on a dreary existence.  

Mr. Hatch lives a colourless, ordered life. He goes to work at the shoelace factory, eats his lunch alone, reads the paper and then goes to bed… early. Until, one Valentine’s Day he receives the biggest surprise of his life, a candy-filled heart with a note that whispers “somebody loves you”. Mr. Hatch’s world is turned upside down and he begins to make friends and enjoy all the fun parts of life that he once ignored.

Currently celebrating their 20th Season, Axis Theatre was formed with a mission to present vanguard adaptations and historical interpretations from their location in New York City’s Sheridan Square in Manhattan’s trendy West Greenwich Village.  Show Business Weekly said, "Credit is due to this rather bold company with a distinctive mission, vision and talent to make it happen." Chosen as one of the top ten reasons to applaud New York Theatre by Time Out magazine, who said "Seamless is the word I'd use to describe the Axis Company's new production..."
