Moses, is a cantankerous 2 foot high puppet with a cardboard head who lives on a table. He is worked in the traditional Japanese style of Bunraku puppetry by three excellent artists. And he’s got a problem. All he ever gets asked to perform are fairy tales for children’s birthday parties, and he’s fed up with it. He wants to prove he is a serious puppet. He’s an artist! So tonight, for one show only, the table is his and he is going to perform an epic story: the 12 final hours of the life of Moses of the Bible.
