The Ginger Bread Man


The Ginger Bread Man
Stuff & Nonsense Theatre Company


Imagine being born in an oven and the first person you meet wants to dunk you in his tea!

Up and down and into town our Gingerbread Man must use his wits to escape anyone who finds him tasty. Is he faster than a Goose? Can he cross a river using a Fox as a raft? Are Gingerbread Men allowed on trains?

Stuff and Nonsense apply their usual brilliance with a mix of puppetry, live action, great music, humour and a stunning staging in this exciting and pacey retelling of this well-loved classic tale. Suitable for families of all ages, even if you are three or eighty-three! No scary bits – just don't turn up hungry! Now run, run, as fast as you can, you need to get tickets to catch this Gingerbread Man!
