What is it to be a human being?
What is the difference between right and wrong?
What is the meaning of love?
A new version of Carlo Collodis classic story – for 8 to 12 year olds:
About a puppet who has to learn to become human and his dangerous journey in a world full of odd characters, wondrous events, temptations and deceptions.
A wild, visual and musical show, directed by Alex Byrne, with magical puppetry, ensemble play and grim humor.
“.. Alex Byrne's energetic staging almost makes you dizzy...a shuddering, poetic journey with only a father’s unconditional love as compass …beautiful - and indeed that which we would all hope to meet in the magic workshop where love is formed.”
