In the context of constant creative and dramatic tension, through the plan of two main characters, the playing plot with two carpenters, a puppet and a puppy reveals a harmoniously coexistent picture of self-other relation. The theater mixes with the funny aspect of children plays, and the value of arts and education under the influence of the story telling of performing arts and the artistic and creative stage design.

Adventure of Puppets is a play adopted the role plays, projective plays and the mixture of each other. The actors incredibly use various shapes of objects and play them skillfully to enrich the life of the diverse objects. What an amazing play!

After seeing this play, parents and children do not need any dolls to play house. Every single object is a puppet. In the play, Adventure of Puppets, two actors take advantage of the deserted items on the spot of the stage and assemble the creative puppets amazingly in front of the audiences. It is an ad-hoc brushing. What an idea! What a profession! What an art! If puppets did not lie, nor would my nose lengthen.
