Scarecrow and his Servant, The  

Scarecrow and his Servant, The $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
A fabulous stage adaptation of Philip Pullman’s children’s tale.

Delve into the magical world of Scarecrow as you accompany him as Jack, his trusty help-mate, and together you can embark on adventures that will make your head spin. From dodging dangerous bandits and surviving terrifying shipwrecks, to soaring through the skies with wild birds, this play is a roller-coaster ride of never-ending escapades. But when the river-polluting Buffaloni tyrants catch up with you for a final showdown, who will come to your rescue and save the day?

It is refreshing to see an adaptation of this kind that is determined to show rather than tell -  Financial Times
