The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming : Tall Stories Theatre Company
This absurdly funny Christmas story about a distressed potato pancake is the first UK stage adaptation from the rich and strange world of American children’s author Lemony Snicket, best known for A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The story begins in a tiny snowy village, where a Hanukkah Latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming (as anyone would if they were thrown into a pan of boiling oil).
The Latke leaps from the boiling pan and races through the wintery village, encountering several different kinds of Christmas decorations, deep in the throes of festive preparations.
A show about being yourself and appreciating others. Will our Latke ever find where it belongs?
The cast of five play a variety of instruments including the ukulele, clarinet, saxophone, melodica, banjo and guitar with vegetable battles, sparkling lights and pine trees.
A premier children's theatre company, Tall Stories have had continued success in recent years with their much-loved adaptations of old, new and timeless stories (Something Else, The Gruffalo), presenting them in fresh and exciting ways, and always acknowledging the presence of the audience. 'Tall Stories sets the benchmark for children's theatre' (Sunday Times).
