Edward is a bit of an oddball. A shy and troubled boy, 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 Edward Lear’s nonsense classic explores that difficult age between being a child and becoming an adult. Dancing chairs, a troublesome telephone and a swarm of shapeshifters all play their part in this tale of a lonely boy who has difficulty facing up to the facts.
