Just So Stories (Red Table Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

The secret to producing something for children – which animation studios Pixar discovered a long time ago – is that it has to also appeal to the adults, something that the cast of this delightful production know all too well. The kids get comfy bean bags and cuddly animals by the front, which is a lovely touch to bring them into the world of storytelling. We hear, amongst others, the tale of how the elephant got its trunk, and how the camel got its hump, with amusing props and fun songs that bring the stories to life in a childlike fashion that appeals as much to the nostalgic adults as to the enthralled kids. A real treat for young and old alike.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 10, 22), times vary, £7.00 – £9.00, fpp24.
