THE DINOSAUR DETECTIVES PUPPET SHOW
Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre
The Dinosaur Detectives follow a fascinating journey surrounding
the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon
Mantell. Their finds changed the face of history when they discov-
ered bones of creatures that became known in Victorian times as
Dinosaurs. A performance with rod puppets, shadow play and
large scale projections illustrates the fascination, fun and the con-
flict that surrounds the search for ‘Dinosaurs’.
