Why Puppets?

Puppet theatre is very popular in Sicily and I took the banner photograph above while visiting one in Palermo. The puppets are large and several folk are needed to operate a cast of them.

In my play, M’Connachie & JMB, Jamie Barrie takes issue with M’Connachie for suggesting he can get enough romance from his characters. ‘They’re puppets, M’Connachie. Haven’t you noticed?’ he asks.

It seemed appropriate to set this blog up under the eyes of one or two.
