Ruth has recently appeared at the Little Angel Theatre in THE BED, a beautiful show created especially for babies and toddlers. Earlier this year she puppeteered in the national tour and Underbelly South Bank residency of TWIRLYWOOS LIVE!, having negotiated a groundbreaking job share to balance the demands of touring with those of her then pre-school aged son. Ruth continues to perform in the incredible puppet cabaret THE CLEMENTINE SHOW and was also one of the lead puppeteers in the development of the brand new Andrew Davenport show MOON AND ME, now showing on CBeebies.
