NICE-1There are two things in Lucy’s life which she prizes more than any other. One is her faithful companion and sidekick Sancho, a threadbare glove puppet who is always by her side. The other is an old toy theatre; little more than a half broken box with a few faded cardboard characters and a miniature moth-eaten curtain. For Lucy though, it is more than this. It is a chance for her to escape to a world where anything is possible, far from the one she knows.
