a small anarchy

puppet show

    MYSTERIUM INGENII

 

    Everyone deserves the chance to

enjoy impossible, scary or wonderful

worlds created right in their midst.

At your wish you can have a visit from 

giant puppets, The Green

Man and the Hornsea Herring Gull.

Both are over ten feet tall, and in their 

iconic looming confound the predictable

--your dreams and nightmares coming

true in the daytime.

From the little, portable booth (folds up

into a car and can be set up almost

anywhere, gardens, conservatories,

living rooms) are performed a range of

peculiar and instructive plays suitable

for *meetings* classes* weddings*

funerals and wakes*

*anniversaries* dull, rainy Thursdays wi'

nowt to do* days  when you want the

world to be queer and lovely for free.

             The repertoire includes:

“Harvey’s Vaudeville” 

“Exitintoday(from theEgyptian Book of the Dead) 

“The Diary of Samuel Pepys”

"Philemon and Baucis", based on Ovid's account of an old legend, and

"Macbeth for Ferrets", Shakespeare's classic vividly

re-enacted by a troupe of bushy-tailed ferrets and mink. (Look on

"Plays"page for more details and pictures)

      The plays last about  45 minutes.   They are suitable for audiences of  up to 20 people.
