Wanderly Wagon is returning home for the Monkstown International Puppet Festival. Taking place in the Dublin suburb of Monkstown on 21st September, in the spiritual home of Irish puppetry where the Lambert Puppet Theatre gave life to Ireland’s most beloved icons like Mr. Crow and Judge.
Monkstown International Puppet Festival (MIPF) is filled to the brim with Irish and international puppet legends, the next generation of Irish puppeteers and the masters of it all. Master puppeteers Louise Gold and Nigel Plaskitt have between them transformed the face of puppetry worldwide. Louise started her career at the Jim Henson studio as none other than one of The Muppets puppeteers. Nigel’s puppeteering has been credited in Labyrinth, Doctor Who, Spitting Image and the beloved PG Tips Monkey.
Also in association with IADT, Hot Water Bottle Theatre Company will transport you into another world with “Good Morning Mr Moon,'' a tale of desperation, transformation and unwitting power told through tricks, illusions, light, music and puppets. And Fish Kettle are putting on a street spectacle in the village square.
And no puppet festival would be complete without a traditional Punch and Judy show
