Children and families

I liked the presents for Stan and Stella.  They danced about the Jumblies - who had green hands and blue hands.  The Dong looked for his Jumblie Lady with a luminous nose - it was funny.  The presents made lots of funny noises.



Molly Whuppie

Main Image

Molly Whuppie is based on a traditional Scottish tale. Molly is a Scottish super-hero, a bold wee girl who climbs the mountain to brave the forest, the Giant and the Bridge of the One Hair, in search of food for the Winter Feast. She discovers a Giant and a King who are not what they seem – the Giant is in fact a joyous ukulele-playing Gardener, persecuted by the wicked King Boris, covetous of his Neverempty Purse, his Dragon Sword and his Singing Ring! Most importantly she discovers that she herself is cleverer and braver than she ever imagined.

Molly Whuppie was first adapted by Virginia Radcliffe in 2001 and has been seen by over 33,000 people all over Scotland. It has played as the Christmas show twice at The Traverse, The Byre St Andrews and Greater Easterhouse Arts and toured extensively from distant Highland village halls to inner city Glasgow housing schemes. The last production was in 2016. The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie has also toured to Sweden and Ireland.

Molly Whuppie is suitable for everyone aged 3 years old and up, including children with additional needs and English as an additional language.
