Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Ronnie Burkett's new show


I'm a big fan of Ronnie Burkett.  Hi marionettes are amazing - as 
wonderfully crafted as those of Frank Paris and other greats.

I live near Edmonton and I always go to his plays at least once while he's 
in town.

I have pasted in the show calendar below.   (I see that he has move up to 
the Citadel Theatre from the Roxy - much more appropriate for his standing, 
IMO.)
I am curious, does anyone know why he doesn't do any shows in the USA?

Also,  unfortunately I missed Tinka's New Dress.  Does anyone know where I 
can read a copy of the script?  or better yet watch a video of the play?

Thanks in advance,
Garth.
