    Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot

    Inspired by Spike Milligan and old shoes
    Directed by Steve Tiplady, Puppetry direction Liz Walker
    Composed by Iklooshar Malara, Performed by Mark Pitman.

    A fantastical tale of the secret life of shoes – what do they get up to when you are not there?
    For 3 – 9 year olds

    Garlic Theatre take you on a journey to One Shoe Island where farmer Bunyan is fishing for shoes helped by little Roo and a one eyed welly boot.
    Their little world of fun and laughter is interrupted by the discovery of a naughty red boot who threatens to walk all over them.
    Where did it come from and what does it want?. Shoe Kangaroo goes on an adventure to save her little Roo and discover what the boot is really up to.
    Magical transformations and beautifully crafted shoe puppets combine in this bizarre, funny, poetic and imaginative show.
