Stick Man – a synopsis

The world outside the family tree is a dangerous place for Stick Man. A dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him and he even ends up on a fire.

How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree? Passing through the seasons and culminating in a joyful Christmas celebration; a visit to see Stick Man promises to be a touching and funny school trip.

•    Theatre Royal Northampton: 2nd – 3rd October
•    Billingham Forum Theatre: 14th – 15th October
