"The Man Who Had No Luck"
A two-man medieval style show. Turbert of Honiton goes in search of good fortune. Full of daft humour and props, eccentric puppets and audience participation!

Suitable for ages 6-100, this show has been particularly popular at historically themed events.  Can be performed indoors and out.

Running time: approx 35 mins (can be performed several times a day)

The Man Who Had No Luck
 

"Chat To A Rat!"

One of my most popular creations!  Loved by young and old alike.
 
Rastus the Rat sits in a small (but beautifully formed) medieval style puppet booth and chats to passers-by.  All the interaction is improvised and hilarious results are quickly achieved.  Rastus has performed at fairs,  cabaret clubs, stately homes, zoos and was even the ticket collector for a marquee ball.  He has also been used for healthy eating education in schools!

Ideal for outdoor events and street fairs as the puppet booth is free-standing and needs little space.

Rastus the Rat
 
I normally perform with Rastus throughout an events' duration in 15-20 minute stretches.

"Dr Thomas Clinker's Piratical Extravaganza"  (Available June 2011)
A puppet show of minute epic spectacle!
 


Sea monsters! Ship battles! Storms and shipwrecks! Pirate swordfights! Whale riding! All crammed in a small puppet booth!  Gasp! This show uses a variety of tiny but beautifully made sets, puppets and props to tell of the outrageous adventures of  Captain Jeramiah Obedia the luckiest man in England!
 
This short (but very busy!) show goes in tandem with my pirate/walkabout show as part of 'TyburnJig Theatre'
