Molly Whuppie

Main Image

Molly Whuppie is based on a traditional Scottish tale. Molly is a Scottish super-hero, a bold wee girl who climbs the mountain to brave the forest, the Giant and the Bridge of the One Hair, in search of food for the Winter Feast. She discovers a Giant and a King who are not what they seem – the Giant is in fact a joyous ukulele-playing Gardener, persecuted by the wicked King Boris, covetous of his Neverempty Purse, his Dragon Sword and his Singing Ring! Most importantly she discovers that she herself is cleverer and braver than she ever imagined.

Molly Whuppie was first adapted by Virginia Radcliffe in 2001 and been seen by over 33,000 people all over Scotland. It has played as the Christmas show twice at The Traverse, The Byre St Andrews and Greater Easterhouse Arts and toured extensively from distant Highland village halls to inner city Glasgow housing schemes. The last production was in 2013. The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie has also toured to Sweden and Ireland.

Molly Whuppie is suitable for everyone aged 3 years old and up, including children with additional needs and English as an additional language.

Testimonials


The show was fabulous – as always, and the children have talked about it non-stop! The production was amazing and I found myself getting caught up in the excitement and the story too! I have never seen the nursery children so quiet and still before!Early Years Officer, Craigour Park Primary - The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie, December 2013
FANTASTICOSICO! The whole show was fantastic... I know that all our friends' children would love this. Will definitely push your company to all we know with kids. We would love to see all of the other productions (and so would our kids!)Audience member. The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie, December 2013
The lack of opportunities in the area for expressive arts experiences for the children is saddening, so having the chance to offer involvement in such a production was invaluable.Early Years Officer, Craigour Park Primary - The LicketyTale of Molly Whuppie, December 2013
