An environmental tale about the world's most trafficked mammal & the power of one girl's courage in her convictions, with puppets & poetry.
about the production
Thrilling, funny and thought-provoking, Pangolin is the story of a young girl who, by defying the will of her poacher parents, learns that everyone has the power to make a difference, no matter how small, by bringing the pangolin - this remarkable yet little known, and critically endangered, real life animal - to the attention of the world. With puppets, poetry, original music and more than a touch of silly(!), this timely and urgent environmentally focused show, and the educational wraparound, is presented in association with Born Free, the acclaimed wildlife charity.
