Barge proprietor Gren Middleton has written a book about

the adventures of creating the Puppet Barge.

 

                               Like a Dead Bird Flying

               The foreword is written by Barge patron Michael Palin

 

 

 

 

                                                                                        Brer Rabbit

      "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."

                                                        James Wood The Guardian

"Everyone who's visited the Puppet Theatre Barge moored in

Little Venice, knows it's one of the most charming theatrical experiences London has to offer. From the moment you step aboard you're transported to the wonderful world of

Movingstage Marionettes, with their humourous,
song-filled string-alongs."

                                                                               TIME OUT

"My children were spellbound throughout and my senses
were so tangled up, I needed a minute or two to collect myself."

                                              COUNTRY AND TOWN HOUSE

"A gorgeous and skilful performance at a great location. A visit to The Puppet Theatre Barge in Little Venice is the perfect treat for an adult or child."
