The Fisher-Knight's Tale
In Autumn 2016, I received a grant from Arts Council England to develop a new puppet show, The Fisher-Knight's Tale, under company name Wild Toy Theatre which toured throughout 2017. With a bit of luck, I will be making a new puppet show in 2020!
About the Show:
Suitable for children aged 5 and up, The Fisher-Knight's Tale is a ‘pop-up’ adventure for intimate settings. Meet Laura, the Fisher-Knight! She is brave, she is bold, and she is armed with a fishing rod! Laura is on a perilous quest to save the River Kingdom from floods. But where have all the fish gone!? And who is cutting down all the trees?
