Moses was the hero of Exodus, the man who gave us the 10 commandments in the Bible, but he is also the hero of a new puppet show created by the UK-based Blind Summit. And the name of the show also reflects the great prophet's life - The Table. In the show, the character of Moses invites audience members to visit his table, to tell them the story of how he got there and of the people who have visited him and who have departed.

"We thought the metaphor of a puppet stuck on a table would be very interesting," said Mark Down, the artistic director of Blind Summit. "We wanted to play with the idea of Moses being trapped in the wilderness for 40 years after he was excluded from the Seder (a Jewish ritual which involves telling the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt) until he died."
