"A fun take on a serious topic, full of empathy and laugh"
“lyrically brilliant songs"
(North West End review)
"The performance and design of the puppets are a highlight of the show”
“a must see for those who crave some more puppetry"
Genre: Theatre / Puppetry
Running Time: 60 minutes
The eccentric proprietor of a vintage clothing shop finds her beliefs challenged when the items she is selling begin to come to life.
Using puppetry and live action, taking inspiration from the fur trade’s devastating imagery, FAUX creates a piece of theatre with a strong visual narrative that is more accessible for all than the topic suggests.
We are currently developing FAUX for more puppetry and updating the narrative regarding the fur trade. We will be showcasing this adaption at the Brighton Fringe 2019.
