About Galoshins

Company Name: Sokobauno Puppet Theatre
Company Website: www.sokobauno.co.uk

Galoshins battles with his adversary, the mighty Admiral, but their encounter does not end well for our protagonist. A doctor must be found to revive our hero, Dr Brown, the finest and the funniest doctor in the town. As comic routines abound this unconventional medical fixer-upper, who’s partial to a wee fish supper helps bring the play to a happy end. Everyone promises never to fight no more and be as good as brothers as we ever were before!

This culturally significant Lowland Scots folk drama is told vividly by Sokobauno’s master puppeteer Shane Connolly using glove puppetry, live music and rhyme, and is the result of a residency at the Scottish School of Studies Archive. Over the past decade Shane has collaborated with many leading UK companies including NTS, Visible Fictions, Lyceum Theatre, Citizens Theatre, and Vanishing Point. This will be Sokobauno’s twelfth Puppet Animation Festival.

Age Guidance: 5+
Length of Performance: 45 minutes

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Galoshins are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
