Based on the novel (published in 1890) by Norwegian author Knut Hamson.
“Hunger is a gob-smacker of terrible beauty in which manipulators become one with the manipulated. This is pure stage magic where the choreographed style of the Eurozone, meets the best of British puppet labs to create a world class spectacle. Surely destined to become a classic of the international puppet scene” ***** Venue Magazine
