An
Overcoat

The influence on a child’s life that ultimately led them to a life as an artist.

An Overcoat is about the fantasy world of a child during the war years of the 40’s. To him the overcoat assumes different roles during different stages of the growing up process. At all times it remains a treasure chest of things remembered or imagined in sequences which epitomise the magic and possibilities of puppetry.
