The Ancient Mariner

Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a favourite of mine, so I was intrigued to see the Movingstage Marionette Company’s puppet theatre production on the Puppet Theatre Barge.

The poem was recited and the story acted out with hugely effective results. The puppets were marvellous and the experience was hugely atmospheric. I didn’t think the production really needed an interval, but other than that, I completely loved it.
