The Man who followed his Legs (and kept on walking) is a celebration of human resilience, following the story of two Young Scottish coalminers’ experience of World War 1. The death, loss and mayhem of the trenches forces Johnny to follow his legs (and keep on walking) to rediscover a reason for living.
Funny, entertaining and moving, Wee Stories bring their distinctive brand of story-telling to this rich production, based on true events leading to the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Video images, puppetry, music and performance vividly bring alive the enormity of this first global conflict for a new generation of young people.
