 With their puppets of flying chickens, brain transplants and sneaky ninjas – Bunk Puppets have captivated international acclaim for their inventive approach to shadow puppetry.

In Sticks Stones Broken Bones a dozen shadow puppet characters are assembled on the spot out of household items, old toys, bits of fluff and bits of card, and then transformed into live cartoons on screen. With all of the puppetry performed in front of the screen, the audience gets a cheeky peek into how the magic is made. It’s like watching a live cartoon show get made up right before your eyes.

Sticks Stones Broken Bones has been delighting audiences of all ages around the world: from Edinburgh to Tokyo, via Dubai, Beijing, NYC, Amsterdam and London. With hardly a word spoken, this heart-warming show will squeeze every bit of imagination it can from the objects you use and see every day. Come play in the dark!

“It's hard to imagine a more entertaining, generous or inspirational family show.”
