Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play
Lauren Child’s sibling adventures hit the stage
This article is from 2010.
Lauren Child’s hugely popular brother and sister duo burst off the page, out of the TV screen, and onto the stage! It had to happen sometime, and Watershed Productions seem to have done an interesting job with the whole 2D/3D challenge. Featuring some of Charlie’s trickiest problems, including Lola’s messy bedroom and her frustrating inability to fall asleep, the show mixes puppetry, live action and music to make absolutely the extremely bestest show on the Fringe, as Lola might say.
