A play about BRAVERY!
Molly Whuppie is a bold wee girl who lives happily by the seashore below the great mountain. A great winter descends and there is nothing to eat. Molly Whuppie spies the golden towers of a fine castle high above the treetops.
One night she bravely tiptoes out of the house and up the mountain to find the King to ask for food for the Winter Feast. Little does she know that to reach the King she must cross ‘The Bridge of One Hair’ or that deep in the forest there is… a Giant!
So begins a great adventure where Molly finds that nothing is what it seems and that she is braver and cleverer than she ever imagined.
Molly Whuppie is based on a traditional Scottish tale. Production underscored by live harp and fiddle from two of Scotland’s finest musicians.
“This show has the wit and vigour to entrance all ages…a classic piece of children’s theatre” The Herald *****
Of all the many shows I took my daughter to see in her early years, Molly Whuppie stands out as the most enjoyable and the most memorable. We enjoyed it so much we went a second time, taking Granny along too. I’ll always remember glancing sideways and seeing the faces of my daughter and her Granny both laughing and both equally absorbed in the fate of Molly Whuppie.
We also loved the post performance session with the cards with the song words and the puppets to cut out…we used them over and over retelling the story, and still have them somewhere! Mum, Edinburgh
