“The production was amazing and I found myself getting caught up in the excitement and the story too! I have never seen the nursery children so quiet and still before!”

Heelie-go-Leerie

A play about play.

Three people from different places. Three people holding up the same roof, who need to find the answer to a question…

We meet in the playground but where have we come from and where are we going? To the moon? To the stars even? 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 – no matter what!

“a truly rich and original children’s theatre experience…. something tremendously courageous and important here, in the determination to create a show truly based on the rhythm of children’s imaginations at work, on sudden random flashes of inspiration, fragments of rhyme, and brief rushes of narrative invention. The cast work their way through it with terrific commitment and understanding, and the whole audience is charmed, touched and just slightly changed.” The Scotsman
