Fisherman & The PearlFW

McManus, an old fisherman from Fisherman’s Cove has seen it all. When he was young the fishing was good and the sea teaming with life. Now he’s old, sad, and grumpy and spends his days sitting on the rocks lamenting the good old days. But his granddaughter Jo has found something at the beach – a special pearl – and all may not be lost…

This is the story of a fisherman’s love, and a precious gift that gives him knowledge of the creatures below the waves. A comic, tragic, yet hopeful telling of a story that affects us all.

With puppetry, storytelling, and animation for everyone over the age of 5. Approx. 50mins.

A theatre show made in partnership between Lempen Puppet Theatre and The Marine Conservation Society. Directed by Alison Duddle of Horse & Bamboo Theatre. Music by Loz Kaye.
