RAW: The Grimstones @ The Bosco Theatre
In terms of puppetry, set construction and staging The Grimstones is a great feat. The puppets look great and it’s amazing how these performers can bring such life to these characters through their strings. It’s great to see this performance staged with sign language and narrator on hand to translate. It’s a cute show though it does have some pacing issues and the speaking narrator could have a stronger on stage persona, but it’s particularly worth sticking around for the Q+A session afterward to ask the show’s creator and signing narrator how she put together the whole show.
If you’re there for the story you might find that it drags. However I would happily take my mum along (She loves this kind of stuff!)
