Georgia, USA 'Penny Francis's Puppetry does a magnificent job of explaining essential elements of puppet theatre and puppet history, and the performance contexts of contemporary puppet performance...Francis's book is like Peter Brook on directing, David Mamet on acting, or Brecht writing about theatre theory - like the works of Brook, Mamet, and Brecht, the author's opinions are extremely useful, provocative, and always suggesting larger and alternative points of view.' - John Bell, Director of the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry, University of Connecticut, puppeteer and member of the award-winning Great Small Works Theatre Company, USA
