Oscar and the Highland Castle

Glasgow Comedy Festival: One of Scotland's most evocative folk tales is imaginatively re-told with wit and charm courtesy of Mousetale Puppets at Scottish Mask and Puppet Centre!

Oscar and the Highland Castle

About Oscar and the Highland Castle

It’s 1307. Scotland lies defeated and Robert the Bruce is hiding from the English.....

Answering a call for help, Oscar the mouse leaves his attic home and heads for Loch Ness where he finds Incy Wincy Spider among the ruins of an old castle. Mysteriously swept back in time, Oscar joins Incy’s campaign to free the castle from English rule and restore Scotland’s independence!

Here, one of Scotland's most evocative folk tales is imaginatively re-told with wit and charm, using a combination of ultraviolet effects, shadow puppetry and upbeat music. A truly memorable and inspirational performance.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Oscar and the Highland Castle are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
