Letters to the Editor

Sir - The news that the Lambert Puppet Theatre is to close, though sad, stirred a few happy memories for me of childhood days watching Wanderly Wagon after getting home from school.

I loved the storylines and took the immense talent of the puppeteers and the professionalism of the human cast for granted - as we all tend to do at that age.

Judge was wise and his words always carried weight, but Mr Crow played his part, too, intervening uninvited in the mini-dramas to everyone's annoyance and distraction, and Mr Fox lived up to his name as a wily observer of life in general.
