Puppet company Pickled Image return after selling out last year with The Chatterbox. In a deserted railway station an old man waits and remembers. As he opens his suitcases, a macabre carnival of strange and beautiful characters emerge to tell his story…

Houdini’s Suitcase fuses live performance, extraordinary puppetry, and a haunting soundtrack to create a poignant and wonderfully funny sensory feast for audiences 12+.
