“A shiveringly powerful play for our time, for adults and strong-minded children everywhere.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

Utterly charming, Puffin is a creative piece which carries an activist message about our own actions against climate control.”    ★★★★ The Skinny

Why do clouds multiply in inexplicable ways?
Why do sand eels just disappear from the sea?

Puffin is a beautiful and poignant new work of music theatre exploring how we relate to the natural world.

Using music, songs and movement Puffin explores our relationships with and our responsibilities to each other, wildlife and the world around us.

For everyone 7+
