Long Nose Puppets’ are currently working on a new show based on the heart-warming and funny book 'The Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. The story stars a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug. They face many rejections along the way from a greedy badger and an obsessive squirrel to an a cross fox and a not-very-wise owl. It's a tale of hope, empathy and finding that right SOMEONE. Set to Tom Gray's beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter, love and acceptance...and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets. Hopefully coming for a hug near you in Autumn 2020 and 2021.
