The Tear Thief
Autumn Tour 2012

Little Angel Theatre In association with The Royal Exchange Theatre
Adapted from the book written by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.

Suitable for age 3 years +
Running time 45 minutes

Each night, in the hours between supper and bedtime, the Tear Thief carries her waterproof, silvery sack as she steals the tears of every child who cries. But what does she do with all those tears?

‘Your tears are the most precious tears of all. They are worth more than diamonds.’

A heart-warming modern fairy tale of a magical world perfectly brought to life by stunning puppetry, with beautiful music played live and recorded narration by Juliet Stevenson CBE.

“You can always rely on Little Angel for respectful work. And this exquisite miniature show is no exception. It respects the children and others in the audience. It respects the transformational magic of puppetry and it respects the power of storytelling… Definitely another triumph for Little Angel.”   Susan Elkin, The Stage

Adapted from  the book by Carol Ann Duffy / Directed by Peter Glanville / Puppets Designed by Jan Zalud / Set Designed by Simon Plumridge / Music Composed and Performed by James Hesford / Lighting Design by David Duffy
