The White Pump makes idiosyncratic and musical puppet theatre for all ages.

We swear by the power of imagination. Wander to worlds where everything is possible. Deal with big themes through small stories, and turn small stories into big adventures. The art of puppetry is always present and fundamental in modern and surprising ways. The same applies for the use of live music.

Our plays are raw and poetic. They provoke you and console you. They will move you, make you laugh and leave you wanting more.
