1 Day left! We're selling the Puppet King's Royal Collection for donations great and small. All the money raised will help get us to Edinburgh 2019. So have a look at the wonderful works available, donate a fair offer and get in touch to arrange delivery! Thanks to all our supporters and artists! 


Pocket Epics do big stories diy-style. Puppet King Richard II is Shakespeare's gothic drama about a fascinating but useless ruler - plus puppets! We use kitchen utensils, live music & some amazing Czech 'javaiky' rod-puppets, and some acting. We're actors not puppeteers so sometimes things go wrong, as they do for King Richard! Enemies grow strong while Richard loses everything. Alone in prison he tries to make sense of it all. Divine right becomes flesh and blood and painted clay. We invite you into the court, close up. See how power shifts and regimes change! 

In Prague, Brighton & Scotland audiences and critics loved the show:

"you have not really witnessed Shakespeare, until you see one glove

puppet slap another glove puppet in the face with a glove, in challenge of their

honour" ReviewsHub*****

"food for my soul"- "the best Punch and Judy I ever saw"- "I know I will never forget it"

MustSee Show, FringeReview, Brighton 2017

A reviewer loved the show so much she is now our producer! We want to get seen in Edinburgh and grow the show and the company. 

The riotous reign of King Richard II saw a renaissance in painting, precious metal-work, literature, glass and book-making. 

We have some great works of art too, inspired by Shakespeare's play, donated by our incredibly generous artists to help get Puppet King Richard II to the Edinburgh Fringe 2019. Something for everyone...
