Goodbye Mr. Muffin

A life-affirming and heartwarming tale of saying farewell
Co-production with De Røde Heste

With warmth, humor and respect, we experience the story of the last days in the life of a much-loved guinea pig. For Mr. Muffin is no longer well, and is going to die. But he has had a good life. He has eaten crunchy almonds, explored the world around him, and in his youth even made a name for himself as a strong guinea pig. Though it is mournful to part with him, there is still an entire life in which to rejoice.


”Not only is the show a beautiful children’s story about death. It is also a grown-up harmonic tribute to a life lived in satisfaction, which ends in fulfilment.” – Information

”Puppet theatre of the absolute highest quality about the larger themes of life. Relevant to everyone.”
