About the Event
A new to stage play, extracted from the soon to be published series of children’s books by Gary Edward Jones. The OOGY BOOGY Man is reminiscent in style of the darker fairy tales of olde, weaving poetic tales of talking trees, a cauldron full of forest-laden spells, and of hushed secrets intertwined between the creaking branches of ancient trees.
The story tells the tale of a lonely Ogre who is not all that he seems. His voice not heard behind the twig in his cheek, and despite being eight feet tall he is not seen by the people of the town. For they fear him, and his differences. He is not like them.
He hides himself away in his own disgust, in the disused Mill at the top of the Hill.
The OOGY BOOGY man just wants a friend. He dreams of a friend. Can the cauldron and a potion made by the spirit of his grandmother bring everything OOGY dreams of?
“Flowers and apples and worms unite, bring me some friends on this cold autumn night. Turning my potion into a cure and lead me to laughter, alone nevermore” – he sings! Hypnotised by his own potion.
This play will enthral children and adults alike, and will reignite your love of Folk tales through the sparks of OOGY’S cauldron…
Come see if OOGY’S potion works!!
