An evening of Shadow puppetry from the UK's only full-time hand shadow performer, Drew Colby.

With nothing but light and dark Drew Colby conjures up tales of deceit, trickery and mortality; ghostly, romantic poems of illicit love and passion from beyond grave in "The Highwayman" and "The Suffolk Miracle" and stories with humour "The Witch called five". All made with two hands.

Drew Colby -  Finger and Thumb Theatre
Drew Colby has worked as a puppetteer across two continents, Europe and Africa, for over thirty years. He is the master of many traditional puppetry techniques including the double-bridge, long-string marionette shows and open stage bunraku-style puppetry, but his passion lies in the art of shadowgraphy and the ability to make theatre simply out of absences of light. He has since travelled around the world to perform and has created shadow sequences for B&Q, Nintendo, Lodotra, Suso, Sainsburys, Channel 4 and the BBC.

Each tickets includes a delightful Hendricks Gin cocktail and a 20% donation toward a host of restoration projects at Brompton Cemetery.
