The Story of Mr. B

“Brave, tragic, compassionate and hilarious by turns, Shake Shake Theatre’s The Story of Mr B lifts its audience into its heart and holds them there. With great humour and a real sense of how the minds of youngsters work, it tells of life, love, forgiveness and regret.” Thom Dibdin, The List

***** 5 Star Review from The List

This surprise filled puppet show, set in a giant pop-up book, tells the story of Mr Bumblegrum. As we turn from one page to the next, this grumbling character goes on a colourful and moving journey through the seasons. Nature tries to cheer him up with tenderness and humour, trees play, the sun swirls, mushrooms laugh and snow falls. As spring arrives Mr Bumblegrum realises he wants friendship again. Can you help blow the stormy clouds away? Will you be his friend? Delighting audiences young and old. Performed with puppets, animated objects and shadow theatre.

Duration: 45 minutes
