The Story of British Puppetry - looking back and looking ahead.

The German magazine Das andere Theater devoted an entire edition in 2006 to the history of British puppetry along with brief snapshots of the contemporary scene.

PUK was delighted to assist German UNIMA with the project and as a result is able to make the English translation available here complete with pictures. Our thanks to Clive Chandler, Glyn Edwards, and Ray DaSilva who prepared the report.
