"Elegiac, both in melancholy and beauty, this production is suffused in vulnerable intimacy. If it is the pursuit of honesty by puppet proxy displacement then Little Angel Theatre is pulling on all the right strings – without a shadow of a doubt."  ★★★★  The ReviewsHub.com
"Shakespeare's racy verse turned into a terrific puppet show - Venus and Adonis," ★★★★
Witty, erotic and ingenious ★★★★★ The Guardian

A unique version of Shakespeare’s kaleidoscopic poem using narration, music and puppetry.  This little-known gem was Shakespeare’s first bestseller, weaving together comedy, tragedy and beautiful poetry to tell the raunchy story of Venus and her obsession with handsome Adonis.
Created in collaboration with Little Angel Theatre, the home of British puppetry.
Presented by Civic Theatre in association with Dublin Theatre Festival.
