Award-winning Box Tale Soup present with G.K. Chesterton's Manalive!, featuring beautifully hand-crafted puppets and stunning original music.
Beacon House, a broken-down boarding establishment, and its bored, brooding tenants, are about to receive a visitor...Someone who will turn their little lives upside down and show them a world of wonder they had long forgotten.
But what if their new guest is not all he seems? What secrets lie beneath that bright exterior? How can you trust a man whose name... is Innocent?
