In a nutshell:
Award-winning puppetry / Engaging storytelling / Stop to smell the tulips

By Wolf Erlbruch, adapted by Peter Wilson

Directed by Nina Nawalowalo

Duck, Death and the Tulip is a beautiful, gentle puppet show about a playful duck and a mysterious character who strike up an unlikely but loving friendship.

Adapted from the popular children’s book by Wolf Erlbruch, the award-winning show is simple, unusual, warm and witty. With an original score by much-loved New Zealand composer Gareth Farr, Nina Nawalowalo’s direction and sensitive performances by Little Dog Barking’s Peter Wilson and Kenneth King, the story and its telling will intrigue and enchant both adults and children.

Giggle, weep and contemplate the universe as Duck, Death and the Tulip takes you gently by the hand and leads you to face life’s most difficult question.
