Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre plays in the style of puppetry where the puppeteers are in full view of the audience as they work the puppets. This technique gives children a chance to see how everything works and to have a direct contact with the artists. Accompanied by musician Ainsley McNeaney, Rag & Bone makes delightful stories about soft-hearted Owl irresistible. Owl at Home is inspired by the book of celebrated
author and illustrator Arnold Lobel.
