Solihull Arts Complex



Half-term family fun, with the classic tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy.

Performed by the former artistic director of Little Angel Theatre, Steve Tiplady, puppetry, shadows, illusion and specially composed music combine to create a show for all the family that’s visually inventive and verbally witty.

Pinocchio is carved live on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transform into a giant shark as Geppetto uses objects from a carpenter’s workshop to tell the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father.

Award-winning Indefinite Articles are at the forefront of the new wave of British puppetry and have worked with the RSC, Improbable Theatre and the Mighty Boosh.​
