The Fisherman & The Pearl - Puppet Animation Festival

The Fisherman & The Pearl - Puppet Animation Festival

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company (England) presents


The sea is all around us but we know so little about its life.  McManus, an old fisherman from Fisherman’s Cove has seen it all. When he was young the fishing was good and the sea teaming with life. Now he’s old, sad and grumpy and spends his days sitting on the rocks lamenting the good old days. But his granddaughter Jo has found something on the beach - a special pearl - and all may not be lost ...

This is the story of a fisherman’s love, and a precious gift which gives him knowledge of the creatures below the waves. A comic, tragic, yet hopeful telling of a story that affects us all. With puppetry, mask, storytelling and animation, this production was made in partnership with The Marine Conservation Society.
