...bawdy, challenging, funny offering a wry tongue in cheek perspective on the "happily ever after" ideal.
I was reminded of Angela Carters work in that the Makey Uppers have a modern twist on old tales and bring out themes that are so relevant for today. Though it most certainly is not suitable for very young children for a nice cosy goodnight tale; for older children and adults it’s a joyful opportunity to hear tales that lead the audience into a very different sort of quirky magical world.
As a storyteller that loves tales that both entertain and teach I came away smiling and delighted I had the good sense to see this production. The performance was wonderful.
