Terrapin Puppet Theatre in association with Burnie Arts presents:

What happens when a book character won't stay in their place?

This beautiful and bright puppetry work from Terrapin tells a story of determination, friendship and the power of following your own path.

Benny, the plucky puppet protagonist in The Paper Escaper, knows they are destined for greater things than a simple pop-up book.

But in a world that’s trying to squash Benny between its pages – from a wily dancing fire to a disillusioned illustrator – they will need the help of new friends to achieve their dreams.
