Favourites with local audiences for many years, PuppetCraft continue to tour their latest show for families. Monkey is based on the Chinese epic story and the script is written by the wonderful poet Michael Rosen, Children’s Laureate 2007–2009.
Monkey is the most popular figure in all Chinese literature, loved for centuries by young people and adults alike. His story is found in a classic sixteenth-century novel, The Journey to the West (Xi You Ji or Hsi Yu Chi), as well as in countless later adaptations, from Chinese opera to comic books. Stunning string puppets, antique shadow puppets and live music tell the story of the birth and comic adventures of MONKEY the fantastical and rebellious super-hero. “Nothing less than bewitching.” The Stage.
We’re very grateful to Villages in Action for helping to bring Monkey to Littlehempston.
Adults £6.50. Children and students £5. Booking recommended to avoid disappointment. More details on the Littlehempston website.
This event will actually take place in the Community Space – St John’s Church which has been cleverly adapted so that it can be used for much more than just Church services. The Community Space is just along the road from the Tally Ho.
Perhaps you’d like to drop into the Tally Ho before or after Monkey?
