Holden Street Theatres and Les Enfants Terribles Theatre Company
Puppetry, live music, performance, storytelling and physicality blends into a highly sensory theatrical feast suitable for big kids and small grown-ups, featuring narration from Dame Judi Dench. Meet Thumb, the boy who eats his mum, Thingummyboy, with a face even his mother forgets, Little Linena, the material girl, Manky Mingus and of course little Tilly and her terrible tail. Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton in this hugely theatrical, scary, funny, sad, silly, junk-filled, puppetry packed, dark, delicious, musical, magical piece of performance.
