The Fisherman and the Seal - Yugen Puppet Company (photographer - Andy Catlin)6

Living in a small Scottish village by the sea a lonely fisherman looks for love, but things don’t quite go according to plan. Sometimes true love can be found in the most unlikely of places…and with the most unlikely of soul mates!

Using beautifully crafted puppets and striking shadow theatre, Yugen Puppet Company has created this comic story based on the myths and legends of the selkie, adding a charming and surprising twist to this usually most tragic of Scottish folk tales.

Yugen Puppet Theatre’s founder and director Alison Monaghan has over twenty years of experience as a performer, puppeteer, director, puppet designer and maker and illustrator, also working with the National Theatre of Scotland, the Leicester Haymarket Theatre and Vision Mechanics. Alison’s work with her company is inspired and informed by Scotland’s rich source of folk tales and stories.

Alison Monaghan is most skilled at making her puppets live with her charming and imaginative productions.
