When a King and Queen are blessed with a beautiful baby girl they throw a big celebration. But they forget to invite one of the fairies to the dinner. When she arrives unannounced she curses the baby girl to die, the King and Queen are heart-broken. Based upon the Brothers Grimm version of Sleeping Beauty, Little Brier Rose is known the world over for its message of the triumph of love over adversity. The Folding Theatre Puppet Company brings this tale magically to life in its witty and delightful production.
Formed in 1992 by Iain Halket, the Folding Theatre Puppet Company has consistently created intimate and beautifully crafted productions of high quality for audiences of all ages, presenting adaptations of The Singing Ringing Tree, The Jabberwocky and Toucan Two Can at previous Puppet Animation Festivals.
Halket reveals himself to be an engaging storyteller. His greatest strength lies in his ability to flit effortlessly from the serious to the comic and back again, poking fun at his source material without undermining it.
