UK Premiere before Italian Tour
'a theatrical memoir from beyond the grave'
The world's greatest puppeteer brings his father, Henry, a celebrated actor, back from the dead in puppet form: for one night only, to tell the story of his glorious career and their tragic estrangement. Tonight is the chance to settle scores and make amends.
But who is actually telling the truth and who is really in control?
Clever, funny and thoroughly creepy, with a very ugly puppet, this uniquely odd dialogue for puppeteer and puppet explores the edges of truth, the bond between father and son and a ghostly case of puppet possession.
You have been warned!
From the master-puppeteers Blind Summit Theatre who brought you The Table, Henry is another show that defies definition. You are guaranteed an entertaining, unusual and unsettling evening in very strange company.
A co-production with Il Funaro, Pistoia,
