Lunatic Cunning is the recipient of the Jim Henson Award for Innovation, an UNIMA-USA Citation of Excellence, shared Best in Festival at the 2013 National Puppetry Festival and a Jim Henson Foundation Project Grant.  


After it's premier at Dixon Place in 2012, Lunatic Cunning was invited to perform at the 2013 National Puppeteers of America festival, Puppet Revolution in Swarthmore, PA and the  Open Eye Theater's Platform Series in Minneapolis, MN in 2014.

"Godwin’s absolute mastery of puppetry is only one aspect of what makes this show so incredible. He pulls together story with philosophical musings on top of his talent for detailed design and life-giving animation to create an evening of puppetry that you will not soon forget".
