The Alchemist is a medieval man who desperately wants to make his name in his contemporary scientific community, and make a small fortune on the side.
Unfortunately, due to yet another dangerous (and unsuccessful) attempt to make gold, his latest assistant has met a grisly end. As the Alchemist continues with his experiments alone, he makes more mistakes with catastrophic consequences, further hampered by the antics of a pair of mischievous rats and an incredibly annoying bluebottle.
The Alchemist is a light-hearted, slightly-slapstick puppet show for all ages. This gentle and magical performance has captivated audiences young and old across the UK and beyond.
