ED2012 Children’s Show Review: Fair, Brown And Trembling (Theatre Alba Of Scotland)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

Worth it for the short trip out to the beautiful setting of Duddingston Kirk Gardens. If audience participation isn’t your thing, then give this a miss; otherwise, follow the storyteller as he takes you around the scenes of the wonderful Irish fairy tale that will be familiar from the story of Cinderella. With short-sighted princes, daring sword fights, musical accompaniment, true love and a spell-casting whale, this interactive story speaks straight to the audience. The big kids will appreciate some of the finer humour, and the littler ones will get captured by the story and expressive eyes of the excellent narrator. With teas, coffees, juices and biscuits all available, everyone leaves with their own happy ending.

Duddingston Kirk Gardens, 30 Jul-11 Aug (not 5), 11.00am, also 5 and 12 Aug, 2.30pm.
