Smoking Apples present

In Our Hands

Thursday 21st September, 7.30pm

Alf is a trawler fisherman whose experience, camaraderie and loyalty have put him and his boat at the top of the game. But times are changing and so is the industry. How will Alf adapt in order to survive?

Follow a fish’s journey from sea to plate, watch a seagull’s ridiculous attempt to find food and witness a father and son reunite. In Our Hands will transport you out to sea, under the ocean and onto the deck of the Catcher’s Fortune.

Using innovative puppetry, a striking set and an original score, join Alf as he journeys from the depths of despair to rise again and rescue the life he loves.

In Our Hands has been developed extensively both in London and Cornwall by Smoking Apples, an award winning puppetry and visual theatre company.

“The comparison to Pixar is an illuminating one: for, like that film company, there is a restless imagination at work behind the scenes of the entire show, in service of a slick, visually stunning production.” ★★★★ BROADWAY BABY
