A show combining physicality, puppetry and object animation, Drifters presents three characters who are thrust together on a journey into uncharted, extraordinary territory where the familiar transforms in most unusual ways. This will be the first production in the UK by Strange Arrangements, a theatre company known for its innovative physical and visual theatre in Australia where it first began in 1996 and which is now based in the UK in Hampshire.

About The Little Angel Theatre

The Little Angel Theatre was founded by John Wright in 1961 in a derelict temperance hall in Islington. Every type of puppet is used, and themes, styles and stories are drawn from a wide range of cultural traditions. The company tours throughout the UK and abroad and The Little Angel also has an extensive Education Programme, which works with schools and youth groups. More about The Little Angel Theatre
