'A treat for lovers of drama-filled stories' (Guardian)
A huge thank you to Little Angel Theatre for their puppets who modeled for our graphic design. Adam Small acknowledges the influence and inspiration of Gyre & Gimble’s orangutan puppets (as seen in the production of Michael Morpurgo’s “Running Wild” at Chichester Festival Theatre, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and on tour) during the design and creation of his orangutan puppets for this production of Kensuke’s Kingdom!
