Touching, funny and utterly original, this delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classic tale Stick Man comes to the Playhouse for the first time.

What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for Stick Man: a dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him, and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree?

This award-winning production, from the team behind Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, Zog and Tabby McTat features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.

All ages welcome!
