Carlo Collodi’s iconic tale of a talking puppet, Pinocchio, has been adapted specifically for Greenwich Theatre by Anthony Clark. Packed with puppetry, a wood-influenced score, and a sense of adventure, the production is a beautiful reimagining of the original material.

Join Pinocchio, a talking cricket and a whole host of characters, as they discover the impact of their actions and lies.

Tickets are available from £21 on www.greenwichtheatre.org.uk
