Lapin wants Ice Cream

From 3 to 27 August 2012

Institut français d’Ecosse

A show by Compagnie Le Petit Monde (France)

It’s summer time! Just back from French Brittany, Tania has brought in her suitcase a tiny beach where Lapin, the French rabbit, has made his holiday home. But it is hot! And Lapin is thirsty.
After a successful Fringe debut in 2011, the French puppets are back! Join them in their new summer adventure, peppered with carefully chosen and repeated French keywords.

’ ...A great introduction to French [...], a fun forty minutes of puppetry, filled with interesting characters’ - **** Fringe Guru
’The children learn new French words not through being told or taught, but by watching and entering Lapin’s world. It’s clever conceived, designed, scripted & realised in performance.‘*** Fringe Review
