A GIANT of a story: Jack and The Beanstalk at Stratford Playhouse

Stratford Editorial 2nd Dec, 2021

A GIANT OF A STORY! Written by Chris Ponka coming to Stratford Playhouse 18th – 31st December.

When poor Dame Trott and her son Jack fall on hard times, they have no choice but to send their faithful cow Daisy to be sold at market.

On the way however, Jack is stopped by the dastardly ‘Flesh- Chop’ (The evil Giant’s henchman) who instead of buying the cow for a bag of gold, exchanges it for a bag of beans.

When the beans are thrown away, they miraculously grow into one gigantic beanstalk (with the help of the kind fairy) which leads brave Jack not only to the Giant Gorgo, but to his fame and fortune.

Join Jack on his giant-killing journey, with lots of traditional scenes and laughs along the way…
