Two Tall Tales
Suitable for All Groups
'Two Tall Tales' concern the nonsensical and hilarious adventures of Victorian explorer Sir Henry Nearly.
Nearly Up the Pole sees the intrepid adventurer and his sidekick Mortimer Leeveme set out on a expedition to find the Pole - any pole. Led by expedition expediter Jules Goudeau (aka as Jessie Boggs) and hampered by husky Rowff, they merely encounter Henrys indomitable wife Henrietta and his irritating daughter Aurora. Nearly All At Sea accompanies the hapless pair on a voyage of discovery with Captain Codfish and Barnacle the Mate. Unluckily for them, the fabulous island they discover is simply the Isle of Wight, now inhabited by the vindictive Henrietta and irksome Aurora. The plays can be performed together or separately, and are suitable not only for young players of all ages - but for more mature performers.
