The Paper Escaper
19 July 2021 - 25 November 2021
What happens when a book character won’t stay in their place?
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 monstrous chomping sketchpad to a disillusioned illustrator – Benny will need the help of new friends to achieve their dreams.
This bright new puppetry work from Terrapin tells a story of determination, friendship and the power of following your own path.
