The destiny of the new world rests in the paws of one little puppy. Little Jack battles through a world of broken magic to find the girl in the white dress. He must travel into the metallic forest, over the ever-steeper hill and across the haunted cardboard town; but will he be able to save himself? Strange creatures, flying umbrellas and the truth about double yellow lines; Jackajack will be told through jagged physical theatre and junkyard puppetry!

A post-apocalyptic fairy tale, created by award-winning storytellers, TuckedIn. Jackajack stars Sarah Jayne Butler, Thomas Chambers and James Cooke, with puppetry by Katrina Marchant and Bea Pentney. Jackajack is a piece of children`s theatre for ages 6+. TuckedIn`s aim is to produce a piece of dark storytelling that is suitable for children, yet universal in its appeal. We do not set out to patronise our younger audience members, rather let them experience fear, sadness and joy, when watching live theatre. The show premiered in Brighton to great critical response and went on to the eerie caves of the Underbelly during the Edinburgh Fringe, 2007, where it was short-listed for 2 fringe awards. It was subsequently selected for performance at the National Student Drama Festival 2008.
