Was it a dream or did I hear a talking bean?
Jack lives on a small farm with his mum and very little to eat. He likes to talk to the birds, his cow and anyone who will listen. Imagine his surprise when he swaps his cow for some magic beans and starts to hear a whispering in the breeze and a giant rumble in the sky?

Charming and inventive with an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold, a smelly old giant, and plenty of audience interaction, Jack and the Beans Talk is a cautionary tale about what might happen if you throw things out of the window!

A fresh and funny retelling of the traditional story and an ideal gentle introduction to theatre, from the company that during previous Puppet Animation Festivals brought you Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot, Billy Goats Gruff and There’s A Monster in My Piano.

We had a fabulous afternoon with the wonderful Garlic Theatre Company who retold a traditional tale using their beautiful, ingenious puppets. Jack and the Beans Talk had all the classic characters and kept us enthralled!
