Part of Up Next Weekender – September
A puppet show contained within a monstrous giant puppet – the thing that lurks under your bed has some surprises for you! For fans of Dark fairytale, 80’s horror, Stranger Things and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
Bringing you puppetry for an adult audience; this is a brand-new scratch performance from Headstrung Puppets, exploring themes of fear, how we deal with it and the ways we fight off darkness in our lives.
Drawing on depictions of one of our biggest childhood fears, this short piece has the potential to provide some genuine scares, or belly laughs, or both!
Eilidh Bryan is a Liverpool based artist, puppet maker and puppeteer. She is also co- director of Headstrung Puppets, making and performing puppet-based shows around the UK.
She specialises in large scale puppet characters and enjoys making work that is ambitious, playful and surprising.
