Inspired by a marionette show he saw, C.S. Forester, a novelist and theatre lover, decided to create his own puppet theatre at home. In Marionettes at Home, first published in 1936, he shares his experience and enthusiasm for amateur puppeteering and takes the reader step-by-step through the stages of creating one's own theatre; from stage construction and puppet making, to acting and production. Written with passion and sense of humour Marionettes at Home is a little gem that anyone interested in the theatre and puppeteering history would enjoy.
