April's puppet of the month - Charrington...
How were you made?
I am designed and made by Nick Barnes and am made out of cast resin with a wooden body, metal joints, rubber hands and a tweed jacket.
What were you made for?
I was made for Blind Summit's 2009 production of '1984' which played at the BAC. That's Battersea Arts Centre for those of you who don't know...
How did the run go?
Well I wouldn't know as I was cut during rehearsals! I'm not bitter but as you can see, I've only just reappeared from the drawer they stored me in. I believe the show
did rather well though; 4 stars
from The Guardian and the Telegraph.
So why did you come out this week?
I'm often used for demonstration purposes, to grace the coffee tables of those interested in puppets. That was my job this week!
