Mirth and Misery invite you to enter their world of putrefied puppetry and witness their manipulation of the damned. Combining string and table-top puppetry with the Eastern European music of four piece band – come and watch their puppets perform to the endless bounce of the Balkan, Klezma beat. Each character has a song and each song tells a story….Who lives? Who dies? Who cares?

The work of Flying Dutchman is characterized by its fairytale-like quality. We aim to bring back the sacredness into the theatre. The craft of storytelling lies at the heart of what we do. Our venture into puppetry went from big three headed dogs in Greek drama to flat cardboard people in a pop up book.

The Fantastical Tale of the Boy on the Run is a Willy Wonka-like visual spectacle about a boy trying to find his destiny. It is a cardboard miniature performance in a big pop up book.
