The Hug by Long Nose Puppets

The Hug by Long Nose Puppets

A tale of hope, empathy, and acceptance.

Based on the heart-warming and funny book ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. Starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug.

They face many rejections along the way from a rather scary badger, a squirrel (who knows A LOT about nuts), a shy frog, a fabulous fox and an owl who really wants to be wise.

Set to Tom Gray’s beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter, and love…and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.

Recommended age of 4-8 years, though all welcome.

45min running time.

After the show you will have a chance to make your own puppet.
