Long Nose Puppets are proud to announce their brand-new show. Based on the heart-warming and funny book 'The Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. Starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug.
Facing many rejections along the way, they meet a rather scary badger, an obsessive squirrel who knows A LOT about nuts, a fabulous fox and an owl who is trying hard to be wise. A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance.
Set to Tom Gray's beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love...and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets. Running time 45 minutes plus a hug from a puppet.
Long Nose Puppets have teamed up with Annie Brooks to present DU IZ TAK? A tiny tale told by tiny creatures about BIG ideas. Told though the language of insects, Du Iz Tak? is a story about the cycle of life and all its impermanence. Come and peer into a miniature world of little puppets to see a delightful group of friends exploring their ever-changing home. Funny, imaginative and thought provoking. A show for all the family.
Running time 30 minutes.
