The Engineer's Thumb at The Little Angel Theatre. Dotted Line Theatre presents a production inspired by a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle which uses rod puppetry, light, shadow and object manipulation to create memories coming to life and a terrifying coach ride along a dark country lane. Suitable for adults and young people age 8+.

About The Little Angel Theatre

Every type of puppet is used, and themes, styles and stories are drawn from a wide range of cultural traditions.
