  • Overview
    The Terrible Infants is a beautifully realised slice of vaudevillian puppet theatre crawling with characters that could have escaped from Lewis Carroll's waste-paper basket.

    The woeful demise of compulsive liar Tilly drags other lamentable misfits into a woe-strewn, Struwwelpeter-esque revue of twisted cautionary tales. Ever-ballooning glutton Tum and vanity-stricken rag doll Linea would have Tim Burton writhing with glee, and the tale of anonymous Thingummyboy quivers with pathos.
