A man, wearing kiddie's pyjamas, struggles to get to sleep, dragging his blankie and pillow onto a grand piano, played by an unassuming woman.
He slips, slides, tumbles, flies, spins and gapes as the children squeal. "Mummy! He's funny!"
One design trick that makes this a magical show is the grand piano that pivots on a huge supporting strut and rotates and flies through the air. It's exciting and terrifying as the man-child teeters on its edge.
Although the narrative threads came unstuck in the latter half and the show has a few false endings, I loved this show for kids!
