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 the 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.
