Home after a fabulous day at the Retreat in Glen Esk on the hottest Easter Sunday on record – a timely reminder of the theme of our show, but what a glorious setting in the bowl of the glen, and lovely last two audiences in our puppet festival debut. We were keeping a record of the offerings for the most beautiful palace in the world: so far we’ve had libraries, and video games (of course!) gold, princesses, queens, gyms, spas, golden flags, theatres, chocolate bars, and today we got some mermaids – sparkling mermaids sitting in pools lined with pure marble listening to the fountains playing and whirlpool slides … a wonderful palace finale to our little tour
Dagba is resting now, until his next great outing in the Edinburgh festival fringe in August and possibly a slot in the Storytelling Centre in the Autumn if we can fit it in!
On to the next projects, which might include some fishy tales from Scottish mythology depending how our drawing skills develop!
