An Evening of Puppetry

Students in Theory and Practice of Puppetry in the Department of Drama and Theatre at Royal Holloway, University of London present ‘An Evening of Puppetry,’ a selection of rarely-produced modern plays written for puppets and objects.

Offerings include Hugo Ball’s ‘brutilist’ Nativity Play (1916); Edward Gordon Craig’s The Second Prologue: Something Prophetic (1918), from The Drama for Fools; A Quarrelling Pair (1945) by American novelist Jane Bowles; and Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s Prologue to a Puppet Theatre (1906), in a new translation from the German by Emily Russell.

These innovative productions use humanettes, paper theatre, object theatre, OHP shadow puppetry and a variety of other puppet styles.
