The show is presented by Old Saw, a theatre company set up by Greta Clough whose theatre credits include Charlie & Lola's Best Bestest Play (Watershed/Polka Theatre), Siggi Lindal, and Jessica Beck, Artistic Associate of The Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter and an Affiliate Artist at Theatre 503.

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
