A reimagining of the Princess and the Pea with puppets will be coming to the Nuffield Theatre tomorrow.
Set in a drafty castle in the remote Scottish Highlands, Mattress! Mattress! tells the tale of a girl who arrives during a thunderstorm.
She claims to be a princess, but the prince’s mother isn’t convinced.
She tests this unexpected guest by placing a pea in her bed covered by 20 mattresses.
With two entertaining actors, a couple of kilts and a slew of highly stylised puppet figures, this fast and funny family show features singing, sign language, dancing ‘aboot’ and big laughs.
Tickets: £6, suitable for ages three to seven.
