In the press

‘the puppetry, by Nick Barnes, is enchanting: the playful little lion becomes a life-size beast, every lope, leap and shake of its mane uncannily observed. Be warned: it’s emotionally unstinting.’

Sam Marlowe, The Times, Oct 16 2019

‘the mane attraction is Nick Barnes’ adult lion puppet… a vision of pale and mournful splendour’

Bella Todd, The Stage, Oct 15 2019
