The Elves and the Shoemaker
Sat in his kitchen workshop, in a high rise block of flats, Sam Lacey makes terrible shoes and tries to sell them on-line. The only problem is nobody wants to buy them...not at any price!
Then one magical morning Sam wakes up to discover a pair of the most amazing shoes he's ever seen, lying on the kitchen worktop!
How on earth did they get there?
Once again the inescapably bonkers Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company return with thier brand new, up-to-date, size 13 ˝ re-telling of everyone’s favourite story... about elves... and shoes!

"The rather super Stuff and Nonsense theatre company has again hit pitch perfect in its innovative version of the Brothers Grimm fairytale." THE STAGE
"My son has autistic traits and we struggle taking him to the theatre - he gets distressed at the very mention of going to see a film or play. What a difference! We contacted the venue in advance and following an excellent tour (where we were shown where the lights and music are controlled, the back of the stage and were introduced to the fabulous actors and puppets), my son sat and was enthralled. At the end of the performance he even did a standing ovation! Watching my son brought tears to my eyes and when asked what he thought of the show, his reply was 'It was awesome, epic'. It truly was an epic experience from the start to end, one that has really helped my son begin to overcome one of his big fears." ★★★★★
