A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Handspring

My heart did a little flip when I first saw the jellyfish puppet and the large hand and head in this  trailer for the Bristol Old Vic/Handspring Puppet Company’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I love Handspring’s puppets! In the following BBC video you can see some more of the puppets in greater detail if you can put up with the corny interviewer, while some reactions to the play are being storified here. The production is currently on until 4 May, and will also be at the Spoleto Festival USA starting 23 May.
