It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Professor Jane Taylor, a great researcher, writer and supporter of puppetry. Jane died unexpectedly but peacefully at her home in Cape Town on Wednesday 6th September 2023. A full obituary will be posted soon. Jane was well known for her work with Handspring Puppet Theatre and wrote the groundbreaking play ‘Ubu and the Truth Commission’.
