It's the Smallest Show on
our display cases: tiny replicas
of famous theatres made of paper.
Paper theatre was a very popular form of drawing room entertainment
in the Victorian era: Families built the theatres and put on plays.

This 200-year old art form was most popular in countries with fine color printing presses. Many paper theatre productions were printed to promote actual theatre houses and the actual productions mounted there. This festival features classic productions and new works written and designed just for this festival.
