BBC Arts has announced a new line-up of shows for “Culture in Quarantine, a virtual festival of the arts rooted in the experience of national lockdown,” which include a virtual book festival, guided museum tours, Shakespeare performances, and of course, Margaret Atwood narrating an Edgar Allan Poe story while performing a puppet show from isolation(!!!)

Your dream puppet show will appear as part of Front Row Late, which Mary Beard will host from her study. Honestly, I didn’t expect the apocalypse to have puppets, but I’m not mad at it.

If you live in the UK, the programs will appear on the BBC this month. If not, would you mind holding your phone up to the TV and FaceTiming me?
