Theatre of Widdershins
Storytelling & puppetry by Andy Lawrence
Music by Martin Thornton
'The cutest puppets on the block... truly magical' The List *****
Inspired by the exquisite Ladybird Book, Theatre of Widdershins brings a classic fable to life using magical puppets, intricate design, original music and the simplest of dialogue.
Elvis Schumacher, cobbler and craftsman, has worked all his life creating the most beautiful footwear. But now he’s hit hard times. Everyone’s buying boring shoes from the evil businessman, Bunyan Sole-less. Time is running out for Elvis. With one piece of leather left and Bunyan’s factory growing, can anyone help him?
Theatre of Widdershins was created by Andy Lawrence in 1994, performing eight major productions in schools, libraries, village halls and theatres. Andy is a self-taught puppet marker whose previous work includes costume commissions for the Light Entertainment Department of the BBC (Russ Abott; Little & Large; Dr Who) puppet and prop making for theatre companies How It Ended and Full House and collaboration between the Norwich Puppet Theatre and the Roald Dahl Story Company. He has worked with composer Martin Thornton since 1996 on all of Widdershins' productions.
Suitable for everyone aged 3+
