Otherstory Puppet Theatre: ‘Taking a Holiday’

A story of struggle in wartime  – full of intrigue, escapes, comradeship…and bikes.  What does it mean to be a refugee and on the run in your own country? Who will give you a bed for the night, a job… or a means of escape? A table top and shadow puppet show based on the true stories of ordinary people in 1916/17 and the hidden history of the resistance to the war machine in Bristol and elsewhere.


This Evil Thing

The play brings together the stories of Bert Brocklesby, a schoolteacher and preacher at his Methodist chapel and Bertrand Russell, one of the greatest philosophers of his time.  With the advent of military conscription their worlds are about to be turned upside down.
