And those who watch at that midnight hour
From Hall or Terrace, or lofty Tower,
Cry, as the wild light passes along, -
“The Dong! The Dong!
The wandering Dong through the forest goes!
The Dong! The Dong!
The Dong with a luminous nose!
Edward is a bit of an oddball.
A shy and troubled boy, he makes no effort to get on with other people.
Instead he is always watching the horizon, waiting for something to happen.
Then one day "the Jumblies" arrive, and his life is turned upside down … then shaken about a bit … and then a bit more!
With a huge and colourful cast of abstract and figurative puppets, this absurd take on Lear's nonsense classic explores that difficult age between being a child and becoming an adult.
Brought to you by the designer/director and composer partnership behind Little Angel Theatre's Alice in Wonderland and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.
