A slightly more serious approach from Inner State as our two performers tackle Charles Dickens, using puppets and storytelling.

For several years Sir Henry and Lady Lydia Greatham, appeared at The Georgian Legacy Fair in Lancaster giving performances of Great Moments in British history, with their hilarious Bottle Puppets. Lydia improvised with her ‘empties’ and dish mops to make the puppets. This time, the puppets are a bit more sophisticated … mainly made from floor mops!



A concise, thirty minutes version of the famous Charles Dickens’ Christmas story, told by Sir Henry Greatham as Scrooge, while Lady Lydia animates the story with her puppets.
