Following a sell-out season in 2015, the UK's best-selling author Julia Donaldson returns to Edinburgh with a brand-new show featuring Room on the Broom, The Magic Paintbrush, The Ugly Five, Superworm, The Gruffalo and newly released The Cook and the King. The cast of five, including husband Malcolm, bring Julia's stories to life with songs, puppetry and plenty of help from the audience. Reviews for Gruffalos, Ladybirds and Other Beasts: **** 'A potent mix of homespun comfort and slick theatricality that works for all ages' (Scotsman).
