OTTER took the reins and let loose on the unsuspecting visitors of Whitley Arts Festival's What The Butler Saw for 4 nights. He created his most challenging and stimulating piece yet comprising of 5 riddles and tasks, all of which the audience had to complete to win themselves a prize.
For the duration of the performance OTTER resided in his black and white holt at the back of the room. People were invited in to see him one by one and each is told the first riddle to set them on their way.
Players had to find the correct challenge, and then upon completion of the each task the next clue is reveled. If they completed each stage in the right order, they found themselves back with OTTER and won the prize.
