Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Scottish Theater and Puppetry

I saw "The Man Who Planted Trees" twice last year at the IPAY showcase.  It
was a remarkably gentle, gorgeous piece of theater, set with in the shadows
of world war II.  

This New York Times article touches upon it, but I have been quite
interested to observe the level of support that children's theater/puppetry
theater gets with in certain countries. I first came face to face with this
while touring and collaborating with Russian puppetry companies many years

In recent years I have been seeing remarkable children's theater also coming
from Denmark  and Australia along with Scotland. For full disclosure, I must
admit that I had a most enjoyable evening at the party that the Denmark
Consulate personally hosted for their puppetry companies and any interested
presenters at the IPAY Showcase.   It illustrated in a very straight forward
way the very real support and expectation of quality that their children's
theaters and puppetry are receiving.
