With the development of CGI, complex animation and 3D films, it is easy to think that more traditional forms of expression will struggle to have an impact on today’s younger generation. But it is impossible to forget the unique sense of joy that this premier production from Bootworks Theatre brings: having watched the puppets and projection and enjoyed the quirky original soundtrack, I left with a permanent grin on my face. The attention to detail and quick-paced performance will leave you begging to watch it again – I and many others (judging by the contents of their comment book) eagerly await their next venture. Enchanting and adorable, this masterclass in addressing children, and the children at heart, will leave you absolutely mesmerised.
Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16), times vary, £3.00 – £4.00, fpp22.
