Heelie Go Leerie

We meet in the playground but where have we come from and where are we going?To the moon? To the stars? And what will we find? Dragons in the dustbin? Fishes on the roof?

Set in the world of playground games and children's stories, rhymes and songs in several languages and dialects, including Scots, Heelie-go-Leerie Is an irresistible exuberant show, which celebrates the riches of childhood and the energy, wit and tenacity of children.

Children said:

“I loved the going to the moon bit. I loved doing the witch game. I loved watching the whole bit of the show Heelie go Leerie”

“The dragon sucked all the smoke. Then he disappeared. the children came out and they saw the smoke is gone and then they saw the blue sky. They were happy”.

“It’s a dragon looking at people. I liked going to the theatre. It was awful good. I liked the lights”

"I’d give it 11 out of 10!” – Ten year old

Licketyspit has quickly earned a reputation as one of Scotland's most polished children's theatre companies. Its work is typically playful, athletic and imaginative. Those qualities are all present in its latest production.Mark Fisher, High Arts
