RUNNING TIME: 90mins (no interval)

“Which would you rather? One night spinning a pound of wool, or five minutes on the machine? The breaking wheel of torture, or the clean sweep of the guillotine?”

In 18th century France ruined aristocrat Purl meets a group of extraordinary beings who shape destiny through their needles and yarn. This play – with set and props by textile students at Chelsea School of Art – is Purl’s story, told through knitting.

Audience praise for What More? Productions' other works
Posted on 16 August 2017

“We were fascinated throughout – very enjoyable. It’s the first puppetry performance I’ve been to. The frisson of finding what nature chooses to reveal of itself was captured wonderfully.”

“…really professional, beautiful, funny and scary.”

“I enjoyed this marvellous form of theatre for being so imaginative and different to anything seen before.”
