Nobody Rides The Unicorn


PuppetCraft presents

Nobody Rides The Unicorn

Based on the book - a classic of modern fiction - by Adrian Mitchell

Directed by John Roberts. Sound design by Rachel Miller. Songs composed by Andrew Dickson.

Superbly crafted puppets, original live music, lyrical words and song, sound effects and moments of unexpected magic, blend to tell this touching tale. The greedy King of Joppardy and cunning Doctor Slythe trick an innocent young girl, Zoe, into helping them capture a Unicorn. When she realises that they plan to take the Unicorn's magical horn, Zoe knows she must set the Unicorn free... But will she be putting herself in terrible danger? PuppetCraft is based in Devon and has been touring nationally and internationally since 1990 presenting shows and workshops for children, families and adults, using puppetry to tell stories drawn from traditional folklore and original modern tales.

A puppet show for everyone 4 years and upwards. The show runs 45 minutes, with no interval.

The whole piece has wit and charm, to delight both children and adults. - Daily Telegraph
