These are two posters commissioned by the Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company for their new production, The Man Who Wanted to be a Penguin, which premiers this December and will be touring through the Spring of 2020. The show combines live performance and puppetry to tell a a joyful tale that celebrates individuality through some cracking storytelling, beautifully crafted songs and even a chance to learn how to speak penguin!
The posters offer two quite contrasting designs for the show – which is your favourite?
