The next show

Brer Rabbit and the Tarbaby


      "... This beautiful spectacle involving exquisite wooden

      likenesses of rabbits, foxes, mice and even a tortoise, is

      surely one of the sweetest shows in London. Squeezed

      under the cramped cast-iron eaves of the motor vessel

      Maybrent (moored just off Blomfield Road) 50 of us watched

       JEM Rogers 's delightful adaptation from the Brer Rabbit

      stories, narrated by Rudolf Walker. This story involves a wily

      Fox but an even wilier Rabbit, who spends most of his time

      outwitting his traditional enemy...the puppets are beautiful

      and expertly manipulated."
