   ‘The expert puppeteers do their work amazingly.  An exceptional staging.’

ABC, Spain

 

 ‘One of the best puppet shows for adults in the festival.  Its horrifying spirit is contagious.’

The Times, UK

 

 ‘ It seems as if Poe himself from the grave has directed this team. The uncertain, the spooky and enigmatic reach a higher dimension. Fantastic music. A masterful performance!’

El Mundo De Valladolid, Spain    

 

Edgar Allan Poe's spine-chilling world reimagined with puppets

 

Based on three works of celebrated American writer of mysteries and the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe, this puppet thriller performed by leading puppeteers from Spain touches emotions from tenderness to fear.
