Pinocchi puppet by andi sapey

Direct from a sold out season at the Little Angel Puppet Theatre London, Steve Tiplady, as Geppetto, uses the objects of a carpenter’s workshop to tell the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father.

Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive, visually and verbally witty with a big heart.

“Wonderful work that celebrates the possibilities of theatre” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Truly magical…captivating…hauntingly real” – The Scotsman
