SPECIAL DELIVERY is a simple story about the delights of trying something unexpected. When a heavily laden postman is suddenly surprised by a rain shower he discovers that all his packages have lost their labels. In the process of trying to work out the intended recipients, he discovers a bit more about the people on his rounds - and decides to bring a little sunshine into all of their lives.
SPECIAL DELIVERY is a sweet and gentle show without words that will appeal to both adults and children, blending beautiful puppetry with a good dollop of silliness.
SPECIAL DELIVERY is a highly flexible show and appeals to both adults and children. It has no spoken language and is performed to a soundtrack of silent film music, operated from the bicycle. It has no power requirements and needs a flat area of 4m wide by 3m deep. The set consists of an old-fashioned bicycle in a floor stand with attached packages, which incorporate puppet worlds of different scales.
