Puppetry Design and Direction for Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of The Butterfly Lion. Adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s book by Anna Ledwich.
‘the puppetry, by Nick Barnes, is enchanting: the playful little lion becomes a life-size beast, every lope, leap and shake of its mane uncannily observed. Be warned: it’s emotionally unstinting.’
Sam Marlowe, The Times, Oct 16 2019
‘the mane attraction is Nick Barnes’ adult lion puppet… a vision of pale and mournful splendour’
