Amazing puppetry from the team behind War Horse & Running Wild

An adventure story for sea dogs and landlubbers, children, and adults alike. A French ship runs aground off the coast of England. Only a cabin girl and the ship’s mascot, a chimpanzee, survive and make it to shore.
But the townsfolk mistake the monkey, in its military uniform, for a spy, and condemn him to a life-or-death trial....what will the verdict be – and can the local children save the day?
