The Man Who Followed His Legs (And Kept On Walking) is a celebration of human resilience, following the story of two Scottish coal miners’ experience of the First World War.
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, Edinburgh-based Wee Stories Theatre Company bring its brand of story-telling to this poignant production, based on the involvement of the Heart of Midlothian football Battalion in the Battle of the Somme in 1916.
The production recognises the human cost of this and other global conflicts while celebrating human resilience and the possibility of recovery from even the most terrible experiences.
Video images, puppetry and music bring alive the enormity of this first global conflict for a new generation.
