Presented by Wondering Hands Theatre


A journey into the weird and wonderful world of sex and relationships inspired by real stories of first kisses, crushes, discovering identity, bodies and all the fuzzy stuff in between. You will discover everything from amorous crocodiles to creamy aubergine fantasies and learn a new kind of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and sometimes completely out of this world – sex is complicated, so let’s start the conversation!

The company address this country’s serious lack of cohesive sex education. Asking questions and being curious about sex is natural and should be available to everyone. Combining verbatim material collected via open-to-all online surveys, plus unique, innovative puppetry, Wondering Hands explore the places we keep hidden under the covers.

About the company

Wondering Hands Theatre are a brand new company, thinking about the big issues. They want to bridge gaps between generations and encourage communication even when it is difficult and that puppetry is the perfect way to start.

Wondering Hands is a meeting of minds. Puppeteers, makers, actors, musicians, and curious creatures brought together by a mutual fascination for puppetry as a way to start conversations.
