From Kitchen Zoo, the makers of last years' smash hit Christmas show The Three Bears at Christmas comes a wonderful festive spin on Aesop's classic fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf!

Beneath the Christmassy moon, under the snowy mountains, amongst a flock of woolly sheep, Jack is bored. Bored of watching sheep, bored of counting sheep but most importantly bored of SHEEP!

Down in the village just a whisper of a wolf will cause a panic...

Join us for a wintery adventure and find out what happens when Jack cries WOLF!

With original music from folk musician Katie Doherty, puppetry and a tale you thought you knew. 

Inspired by Aesop's fable, for under 5s and their families.
