What Happened to You? is a new, heart-warming piece of puppet theatre for children and their families, coming to Toronto this summer from the UK! Created semi-autobiographically, puppet designer Nikki Charlesworth challenges the fundamental laws of traditional puppetry by making puppets that reflect her own disability, and moves as she moves.

What Happened to You? also features creative use of Audio Description, embedded into the original score, and integrated American Sign Language by a Deaf actor, which introduces children to enhanced access. What Happened to You? will be presented as a relaxed performance; house lights will remain on at a low level and audience members will be able to enter and exit the theatre as they wish.
