|Abstract: ||Working with Pollock’s Toy Museum, this play draws upon the traditions of toy theatre through the means of digital media and reinterpretation for a modern audience. The piece also contributes to the on going digitization of the Museum’s archive. The kit is designed to be mass-produced with modern printing techniques and within modest budget; it maintains the essence of toy theatre whilst being aware of current media practice, software and techniques.
Proposed by Arnott to the Museum as a project, the production developed through meetings, collaboration and detailed research. The work reflects traditional aspects of toy theatre and is designed to appeal to wide audience and makes the text accessible to children. The submission is a synthesis of traditional and modern designs. It remains faithful to the original story and production values.|
|Description: ||Based on the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The play has been abridged down to 16 pages and is accessible to both adults and children. The key events and characters of the original text are preserved. The theatre has been produced digitally and includes many of the traditional elements of a 19th Century toy theatre. Arnott worked closely with Edmond Fawdry, Director of Pollock’s Toy Museum and Paul J. Weighell, Curator of Collections, who advised on and contributed to the text.|
