Craig has been invited to his best friend’s Birthday Party.
There is an invitation to read, presents to wrap, cakes to buy and a house to find.
Who will explain the rules of Musical Chairs?
Will there be enough balloons?

" How to shepherd a gaggle of restlessly excitable three and four year olds through the joys of elementary number play? Bristol company Shoofly Theatre ( aka comic actor Craig Edwards and director/designer Katie Sykes, both regulars on the Bristol/Bath children's theatre landscape) look to have cracked it in this wide-eyed, exuberant little gem.
There's a sense of energy and wonder at the world that feels utterly genuine- and which should inspire a love of numbers, and of theatre, in audiences of all ages." *****
