Duck, Death and the Tulip
Duck, Death and the Tulip is a puppet piece adapted from the children's picture book by Wolf Erlbruch. It was performed as part of a festival of new work at The Orange Tree Theatre, marking the final season of Artistic Director Sam Walters.
It tells the story of a Duck, who meets Death and and develops an unusual relationship. With puppets inspired by the original artwork, and an original score the piece moved audiences from 8 years to adults.
It has been through a further development period in anticipation of further production in 2018.
