TALLER THAN A HOUSE, THE IRON MAN STOOD AT THE TOP OF THE CLIFF, ON THE VERY BRINK, IN THE DARKNESS.

Matthew Robins recreates Ted Hughes' renowned children's masterpiece The Iron Man in a new Unicorn production using his incredible animation and puppetry.

The Iron Man has been eating every single piece of metal in sight: tractors, old cars, fences – right down to the last rusty nail, destroying farms everywhere. The angry farmers try and trap him but in the end it's down to a young boy to try and tame the monster.
Combining live music, shadow puppetry, and stop-motion animation, Matthew Robins returns to the Unicorn following his production of Something Very Far Away and recreates the world of The Iron Man so vividly that you'll feel you are there. His distinctive handmade and visual style of storytelling lets you watch this atmospheric tale being created live onstage.
