Terrapin Puppet Theatre: we’ve promised you photos from The Gatekeeper at Theatre Royal… and now we deliver! The family show billed as “a whole heap of horse play in a play about a horse” was fantastic when we saw it at the Theatre Royal in Hobart.

Terrapin Puppet Theatre: Horse Play

You can take the family along for a day of great entertainment and have a lot of laughs together. After all, what kids wouldn’t  love bum jokes delivered by Bumface? But even better than that – they get to absorb interesting and thought-provoking concepts about life decisions and chasing dreams. We saw the play back in mid September, but the ideas are still being tossed around a month later. Love it!
