The Elves and the Shoemaker is at the Connaught Theatre tomorrow (Saturday November 1st).
Sat in his kitchen workshop, Sam Lacey makes terrible shoes and tries to sell them online. They are so bad that no-one really wants them, not even his neighbour (who thinks he should give up and get a real job!). Then one night, two tiny visitors climb in through the window and start cutting and stitching and gluing…and Sam’s life is never quite the same again!
Following their sell-out shows, The Enormous Turnip, Little Red Hen, 3 Little Pigs and The Hare and the Tortoise, the inescapably eccentric Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company return with an up-to-date, size 13 ½ re-telling of everyone’s favourite story about Elves and Shoes. There are stunning puppets, music and surprises aplenty in a show for everyone aged 3 and above.
Adapted and directed by Niki McCretton.
