ED2012 Children’s Show Review: The Ballad Of Pondlife McGurk (Catherine 
Wheels in association with Brunton Theatre)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2012

The important life lessons learned in childhood friendship are ones you will always remember, and Catherine Wheel’s production of ‘The Ballad of Pondlife McGurk’ is another lesson you won’t want to forget. Martin shares the story of his friendship with Simon, and the audience feel comfortably involved as he weaves in and out of the unusual but creative carpeted seating arrangement of the venue. It is a joy as an audience member to watch this tale unfold, but even more of a joy to see emotion written all over the engaged faces of the youngest audience members. Make sure your children see this beautifully crafted story which moves in a profound way for adults and children alike.

Traverse @ Scottish Book Trust, 3-26 Aug (not 13, 20), times vary.
