Queen honours puppet master Lyndie Wright
Happy New Year to all of you!
South African-born puppeteer, Lyndie Wright, co-founder of Little Angel Theatre in London has been awarded a MBE in The Queen's New Years Honours List. It has been a very special year for Lyndie and the Little Angel. They recently hosted their fiftieth anniversary and the second Suspense Festival, an international festival of puppetry in London. Now the MBE adds the cherry on the top for Lyndie, the Little Angel and world puppetry. We wish them many more years of success in the wonderful work they do. May we all get to share in the light, once again, of puppetry making it into the mainstream of world culture. You may also recall my recent post about the Little Angel here?
I trust that 2012 will be an even greater year for world puppetry!
