The Engineer's Thumb at Little Angel Theatre. Dotted Line Theatre presents a production inspired by a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle which uses rod puppetry, light, shadow and object manipulation to create memories coming to life and a terrifying coach ride along a dark country lane. Suitable for adults and young people age 8+.

 

About Little Angel Theatre

The Little Angel Theatre was founded by John Wright in 1961 in a derelict temperance hall in Islington. Every type of puppet is used, and themes, styles and stories are drawn from a wide range of cultural traditions. The company tours throughout the UK and abroad and The Little Angel also has an extensive Education Programme, which works with schools and youth groups. More about Little Angel Theatre
