Event Description


Small World Theatre presents



Welcome to One Way Street, a new adult puppet show supported by the Arts Council of Wales and Small World Theatre’s tribute to film noir touring Wales this year. Recently reviewed as 'part puppet show, part art installation' One Way Street is live theatre for all the senses, with a set inhabited by puppets and animated film projections by artist Sean Vicary. The show is in glorious black and white and contains all the moral ambiguity embodied in the film noir genre.


Encounter the femme fatale and the hard-nosed detective. Just how will the bankers fare in this post-depression tale of greed, lust and intrigue? This startling monochrome experience has subtle layers and changes of pace that transform San Francisco from soft focus to chiaroscuro sharpness and even take the hero on a journey to meet Dylan Thomas and the Kardomah gang.


Sam Stone is a San Francisco private investigator. People come to him to solve their problems. One day a woman walks into his office with what seems to be an open and shut case, but this one’s going to get him into a whole lot of trouble... One Way Street is redolent with the themes and style of the film noir classics. Its convoluted story and intricate plot leads Sam Stone on a tour of the city’s high and low spots. Written and produced by Small World Theatre, this is a show for adults where skilled puppetry and animation will astonish the audience.


'You won't have seen anything like this! One Way Street is a hugely enjoyable visual feast of puppetry and animation'.


'…eye-popping technical wizardry, an evocative 1930s soundtrack plus an incredible, cardboard box set and this is a show that demonstrates Small World are way ahead of the game'


Get involved and become a character!  Small World Theatre has devised a phone app that gives audience members a chance to get involved and be part of the show. Watch the exciting trailer and find details about how to download the app by visiting onewaystreetshow.com
