SQUASHBOX THEATRE presents: SKILLYWIDDEN
TWO SHOWS! 11AM & 3PM
Legend has it there are five types of faery in Cornwall: the Small Folk, the Piskies, the Knockers, the Brownies and - most mischievous of all - the Spriggans.
Come on a journey through the countryside as we search for these elusive creatures, while at the same time learning all about the bees, bats, birds and butterflies who live alongside them.
Meet Skillywidden, the mischievous Pisky, and all of his faery friends! Watch the dance of the ‘beautiful’ Faery Queen! Marvel at the incredible Book Of Nature as it literally comes alive before your eyes! Gasp at the antics of Brian, the amazing mind-reading pig!
Skillywidden is a celebration of the wildlife and faery myths of Cornwall, using Squashbox Theatre’s distinctive mix of puppets, songs, storytelling and cabaret, with a strong environmental message. More crazy characters, more silly slapstick, more tall tales and more fantastic facts!
For children aged 5+ and their families.
“Craig is a consummate actor with rare skills. Totally at ease with his audience, adult and child alike, he combines an innate understanding and joy in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.”
Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre
"Craig's success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious…. An engaging entertainer to be treasured.”
Frank Ruhrmund, ‘The Cornishman’
