Puppets aren’t just for kids: there are companies all over the world producing puppet shows with grown-up themes.
Now some of the world’s top puppeteers are coming to London to perform at the adults-only Suspense London Puppetry Festival.
The programme encompasses everything from a raunchy puppet cabaret to a show about the life of Albert Einstein.
Don’t miss the brilliant Rust by Green Ginger, about two rival pirate radio stations.
The festival is organised by the Little Angel Theatre in Islington.
The organisers hope the festival will introduce puppetry to new grown-up audiences. If you haven’t seen an adult puppet show before, book your tickets now!
Suspense is at venues across London from 30 October to 8 November.
