Some might be Plink and others are Boo
Why does it matter, what’s the to-do?
Jumbled up people and boxes too small
Come play in our den and discover it all...
Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Plink and Boo. Using acrobatics, live music and mountains of toys, join us in an interactive circus theatre adventure to explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).
link and Boo has been created and written by Can’t Sit Still in collaboration with children, parents and childcare professionals from Bristol and Swindon.
