Pinocchio revisits the classic 19th century Italian story by Carlo Collodi. An enchanted puppet discovers what it is to be a real boy and his father Geppetto watches his son learn from his many mistakes. It's a cautionary tale of a child's journey and a father's unconditional love, touching on today's issues of responsibility, respect and the ability to see yourself as others see you. In this dynamic version Pinocchio encounters an extraordinary mix of vibrant and fascinating characters, both surreal and grotesque, including the puppet master who is himself a giant puppet, the loveable rogues, Fox and Cat, the bonkers inhabitants of Topsy Turvey Land and Pinocchio's trusted friend Lampwick. On his journey through this land of fantasy can Pinocchio find out what really makes us real? Or will he always be someone's puppet?Company Full House Theatre Company.
