Bed & Breakfast
Puppetmongers is pleased to present the entertaining and charming play Bed & Breakfast. Wildly inventive puppetry brings to life a whimsical new version of The Princess and the Pea, in which clever servants conspire against their bumbling employers in the service of true love, while the hero and heroine dodge hilarious disaster along the road to happily-ever-after.
Created and performed by the award-winning brother-sister team of Ann and David Powell, this magical tale of love and humanity is the perfect holiday treat for the whole family, aged 5 years and up.
Set in a magnificent miniature mansion of the Edwardian era, older children are intrigued by the captivating detail – tiny working period light fixtures and a teeny steaming bathtub – while younger children are entranced by the story, transfixed by the power of make-believe. Adults appreciate the abundant humour and everyone is delighted by the happy outcome.
