The sea is all around us but we
know so little about her life.
McManus, an old fisherman from Fisherman’s Cove has seen it all. When he was young the fishing was good and the sea teaming with life. Now he’s old, sad and grumpy and spends his days sitting on the rocks lamenting the good old days. But his granddaughter Jo has found something at the beach - a special pearl - and all may not be lost ...
This is the story of a fisherman’s love, and a precious gift that gives him knowledge of the creatures below the waves. A comic, tragic, yet hopeful telling of a story that affects us all.
With puppetry, mask, storytelling and animation for everyone over the age of 5.
“A wonderful, captivating performance using
A wide range of techniques. The message came across really well
and was beautifully presented. Puppets and visuals stunning!”
“Lempen Puppets gave us a unique, thought-provoking start to our ‘sustainability’ topic. It was a fun and entertaining one-woman show depicting the destruction and decline of our oceans and sea-life.”
