Moira+I took Iris along to the open-air, matinee performance of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf!” at the Bristol Old Vic yesterday. Amazingly (and contrary to local weather forecasts), it didn’t rain! The production was based on Michael Morpurgo’s “Aesop’s Fables” and, in addition to the main title, incorporated other stories (“The Hare and the Tortoise” plus some lesser known tales “The Miller, his Son and the Donkey” and “The Donkey and Belling the Cat”).We’ve seen a number of plays directed by Sally Cookson and they’ve ALL been excellent and this one was no exception. Combining music, humour and an engaging and talented cast, the show was very, very enjoyable.
A really lovely afternoon.
