How would you like it if you were thrown in a pan of boiling oil? No I didn't think so. I'm sure would be screaming as much as Lemony Snicket's poor little Hanukkah Latke.
When the baby potato pancake is born, he is thrown straight into a boiling pan. After that, he can't stop screaming. He might live in a village covered in snow, but even that's not enough to cool him down. Latke gets lost in a festive forest of lights and pine trees, and feels all alone. Will he ever find a sense of belonging?
Lemony Snicket is most well known for his morbid Series of Unfortunate Events books, but this absurd little tale for young children makes for a funny deviation from his usual stories.
The Roundhouse theatre has adapted the children's author's book into a light-hearted family play with live music and lots of laughs.
Tickets are £10, £8 for concessions, or £32 for a family ticket. The show is suitable for anyone over 5, and will be performed between the 28th November to the 30th December. There will also be post-show talks with the cast and crew on the 1st, 6th, 15th, 20th, and 27th December at 2pm & 2.30pm.
To get the kids even more involved, there will also be workshops between 2nd-23rd December, where they will be able to make their own latke puppets. The session lasts 45 minutes, and tickets cost £4.
