The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
23 March till 24 March - Little Venice
These two famous mouse cousins take it in turns to visit one another. First the Town Mouse goes to stay with the County Mouse and has to face up to the unfamiliar world of the wild countryside. Then, the Country Mouse heads into town and has to learn to escape from the house cat and navigate the noisy city traffic. Each mouse ends up much the wiser as a result of their exciting adventures. A delight for young and old, told with rod puppets, music and sing- along songs.

My Shadow and Me - Drew Colby
13 April till 14 April - Little Venice
My Shadow and Me is like a cartoon created live out of nothing but darkness and light. One person (and his shadow) meet and go on an incredible, imaginative, shadowy journey where creatures emerge, engage and transform beautifully. The show uses minimal language in combination with electronic music, a kazoo, a shaker and non- verbal voice effects. Little encounters between characters are explored and tiny stories unfold.
A simple, theatrical blend of amazing skill, simplicity, humour and shadow magic.
There is no captioned performance for this show as it has very few words

Shadow puppets and marionettes combine with specially composed music to make this a programme of beauty, poignancy and fun, which captures and nurtures the imagination. The narrative is driven by a selection of beautiful poems, illustrated and brought to life with puppets and music. These poems have been chosen so that both adults and children, whatever their age, will find meaning and enchantment in the words and images.
