Dig Brew Upstairs | 14:30 - 15:30

It’s been six years since our last Puppetology programme so we thought it high time it was resurrected.

This programme disproves the notion that puppets are mere child’s play. It’s a bear-eat-bear world in Paloma Baeza’s BAFTA winning Poles Apart until devastating environmental destruction forces an unlikely, and charming, alliance. In Brian and Charles, the introduction of a homemade housemate sets off a hilarious roller coaster of isolation, companionship and cabbages. Altogether a delightful, string-free shake-up of what we expect from the form of puppetry.
