PULSE POINTS: The Plasticine Men – There Shall Be Fireworks

Ipswich’s Pulse Festival returns to the New Wolsey Theatre 1-10 June 2017, packed with over 50 events to thrill and entertain. To help you decide what to see, we’re running our Pulse Points Previews, asking performers to tell us about their productions.

Here, Simon Day of The Plasticine Men tells us about There Shall Be Fireworks which is performed at Pulse on 9 June 2017.
