The Chronicles Of Bitter And Twisted (Galopin in association with Fringe Management)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Did the Ugly Duckling really live happily ever after? And what happened to the duckling that was raised as a swan? Both these questions are answered in this charming puppet show looking at friendship and fitting in. This novel take on the Ugly Duckling story is clever, with a script full of sharp one-liners for both children and adults. Strong central characters and great supporting roles (Team Coot are a blast) carry this delightful story along to a heart-warming, but not saccharine, conclusion. Like all the best children’s entertainment, this show never preaches, nor does it take itself too seriously; as a result, ‘The Chronicles Of Bitter And Twisted’ offers delightful entertainment for both parents and children alike.

Assembly George Square, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 11.50am (12.50pm), £6.00 – £8.00, fpp20.
