This new production from Dog and String Theatre is inspired by two stories from the book Tales of Wisdom and Wonder by Hugh Lupton and Niamh Sharkey.

Azal the artist introduces the audience to the landscape of the forest and with their help creates a picture of the environment they are about to enter in their imagination.

Greed is the central theme that unites these stories. Fish in the Forest addressess the issue with humour and cunning, whereas the story of the blind man and the hunter is a more reflective piece and touches on some more profound lessons that can be learnt.

Incorporating; storytelling, traditional glove puppetry and life sized puppets
