Puppets for Grown-Ups at the Suspense Festival

Rust by Green Ginger

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.

Creative Director Peter Glanville says, “People are engaging with puppetry in a way which is really quite exciting. War Horse, Avenue Q and Madame Butterfly are all part of that movement.”

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.
