Little Red Things


In the land of stories a sinister force is at work. A quest begins, taking our audience from the depths to the peaks of the world. Telling of a bitter story-thief and the journey of the woman who stands in her way, Little Red Things is a contemporary fable of greed and inspiration.

Using Gomito Productions’ trademark visual style, Little Red Things is a theatrical feast incorporating puppetry, comedy, physical storytelling and live music to create a magical world.
