New puppet play explores Catholic themes

  • Philip Crispin

A puppet play which explores Catholicism's ethical imperative to love the stranger and welcome the immigrant is currently touring in the UK. Shakespeare versus Moliere is performed by two puppet theatre companies, one French, one British.

Two performances for one day only in London next Wednesday 8th November at 1pm and 7.30pm, Little Angel Studios, London: 0207 226 1787

The play uses the words and plots of the golden age playwrights in a tragi-comic exploration of current global crises, particularly warfare, late capitalism and the mass displacement of peoples.

Subsidised by the Arts Council England, the play is an opportunity to experience a highly visual piece of theatre and resonant words.

Nov 5th (2pm) Wigan Old Courts (two performances)
Nov 6th The Boo Rossendale
Nov 8th Little Angel Studios London (two performances)
Nov 9th Colchester Arts Centre
Nov 10th Norwich Puppet Theatre (two performances)
