Salvage Vanguard's masters-of-marionette unveil their latest production tomorrow, a strings-attached adaptation of Russell Hoban's 1982 sci-fi masterpiece that follows a 12yr-old boy and his meta puppet-within-puppet-show companion as they try to thwart efforts to recreate the atom bomb in a post-apocalyptic landscape filled with rabid dogs (you'd froth too if your canine ears could actually detect the singing Randy Jackson describes as "pitchy").
