A wicked stepmother, a beautiful princess and an all knowing, all seeing magical trout – just the ingredients needed for a fairy tale.
This Scottish version of Snow White, is told with hand carved puppets, striking shadow silhouettes and traditional story-telling, with an original soundtrack accompaniment.
Yugen Puppet Company was set up in 1997, aiming to celebrate Scotland’s rich heritage of traditional stories through their retelling with skilful puppetry and magical, animated shadow theatre. Alison Monaghan has over twenty years of experience as a performer, puppeteer, puppet designer and maker, director and illustrator working with, among others, the National Theatre of Scotland, the MacRobert Arts Centre, Stirling, the Leicester Haymarket Theatre, and most recently Gerry Mulgrew’s production of Tam O’Shanter.
Alison Monaghan is most skilled at making her puppets come alive within her charming and imaginative productions – Highland News
