About the Show

One puppet whisperer, one puppeteer and a curious collection of puppets…

Sue Buckmaster, one of the UK’s leading puppetry practitioners and Artistic Director of Theatre-Rites has created an evening of live un-rehearsed, improvised puppetry.

An acutely sensitive process that usually takes place behind closed doors, the evening will provide a unique and fun opportunity to watch how Sue listens to a puppet, engages a puppeteer and whispers a new character into life.

The Puppet Whisperer was originally a co-production with Little Angel Theatre and first performed at The Little Angel in July 2014, in collaboration with extraordinary puppeteer Adam Bennett.  

WARNING: Due to their nature, some puppets may become fragile or offensive and Sue might have to KILL them. All necessary precautions will be taken to avoid causing upset to the audience.
