8 – 12 years

How do you become human? 

What is the difference between right and wrong?

– And what is the meaning of love?

Theater Patrasket has taken up Carlo Collodi’s fantastic classic, and delivers it in a new version for 8-12 year olds:  

About the puppet who must learn to become human and his perilous journey in a world full of strange figures, wonderful events, temptations and deception.

A wild, visual and musical set-up by director Alex Byrne – with puppet magic, physical ensemble playing and grim and goofy humour.

“’s enough to be blown away by Alex Byrne’s well-laid staging…a chilling and poetic journey with a father’s unconditional love as a compass…it’s beautiful – and exactly what we all hope to meet in the magical workshop of love.”
