Puppetry is not created by just one person but the collective contribution of many. SPLAT! was devised through a collaborative process. The creative team, with special guests Simon Clarke, Lesley Edelmann, Cathy Henderson, Karen Hethey and Damon Lockwood are acknowledged for their valuable contribution to the work.
