Elvis Schumacher, cobbler and craftsman, has worked hard all his life creating the most beautiful footwear. But now he's hit tricky times - everyone's buying boring shoes from the evil businessman, Bunyan Sole-less. Time is running out for Elvis. With one piece of leather left and Bunyan's factory growing, can anyone help him? This well-known and much loved tale has been re-heeled by Theatre of Widdershins in their own inimitable and dynamic style. Beautifully crafted puppets, sublime music, a kaleidoscope of miniature shoes and a comic mouse, make this a magical must-see.
