Ted Hughes’ classic tale is on at the Unicorn Theatre from now until 5 March. This unique production creates everything, from sets to characters to narrative, on stage in front of the audience using stop-motion animation, puppetry and paper-cut silhouettes.

It’s the work of artist and animator, Matthew Robins, and his distinctive ‘handmade’ style’s a perfect fit for the dark and deeply atmospheric world of Hughes’ misunderstood monster and the boy who tames him.

When: Until 5 March 2017, various morning, matinee and evening performances

Where: Unicorn Theatre, Tooley Street, London SE1

Cost: child from £8, adult from £12 (recommended for over 8s). Kids might also like Puppetry Iron Man Workshops at the Unicorn on 4, 11 and 17 February. Part of the theatre’s Up Club, tickets cost £15 and booking’s essential
