Flotsam & Jetsam

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company present Flotsam & Jetsam at The Courtyard this summer.

Flotsam is soft, flexible, laid back. She slides and glides through life on the ice. Jetsam is the opposite, his insectile body in stiff and nervy, alert and watchful, suspicious of all in his forest home. Then comes the weather, and they are both cast adrift in a world that is strange to them and full of a range of dangers. Finally washed up on the same island beach they must discover the other and work out how they can work together.

Flotsam & Jetsam is a hopeful, adventure story about two very different creatures that must learn to work together. The performance features visual theatre with original music and puppetry and is suitable for everyone aged 4 – 104.

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company tour their own unique brand of original stories told with puppets. Imaginative and sometimes bonkers, they focus on puppetry, storytelling, light, music and a journey that takes audiences there and back again.

To make their theatre they are inspired by Myth and Folklore, by intriguing and unconventional characters, by their sense of humour and by matters that they care about. The company aims to produce quality productions for family audiences that connect the real world to the world of imagination.

Flotsam & Jetsam is part of The Courtyard Family Saturdays programme. The Courtyard Family Saturdays include workshops, films, shows and extra activities for all the family to enjoy, at an affordable price, every Saturday morning event at 11am.
