The Lost Colour

Join Malcolm Brushell, professional painter and amateur alchemist, on his quest to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks, mashing every conceivable vegetable, and even bottling and fermenting his own cow’s wee, he has created every colour imaginable…except for that rascally illusive pink, but he won’t give up!

A colourful explosion of puppetry, music and comedy, join the race to create the most pigmented pink paint ever patented! The Lost Colour is the first show designed for The Puppet Van by award winning Half a String. This vibrant joyful explosion of colour is a whirlwind of clowning, puppets, and paint all 2m in the air! The show follows an underdog pigment maker as he battles against the giant corporations of the paint world!

This show is perfect for families with children aged 5+
