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+.
