Sue Buckmaster whispers into the ear of a puppet called Pebble Head. Out of his other ear the words The Puppet Whisperer emerge.

The Puppet Whisperer

Live masterclass, originally a Theatre-Rites co-production with Little Angel Theatre in 2014.

Sue Buckmaster, one of the UK’s leading puppetry practitioners and Artistic Director of Theatre-Rites, has created an evening of live un-rehearsed, improvised puppetry.

An acutely sensitive process that usually takes place behind closed doors, this is a unique and fun opportunity to watch how Sue listens to a puppet, engages a puppeteer and whispers a new character into life.

WARNING: Due to their nature, some puppets may become fragile or offensive and Sue might have to KILL them. All necessary precautions will be taken to avoid causing upset to the audience.

The Puppet Whisperer has performed at Little Angel Theatre (2014 & 2015) and Battersea Arts Centre (2016).
