That’s quite an ambitious production to stage, Buggs. I am impressed. I hope they follow it up with Buggy and the Great Glass Elevator, which, I felt, was the superior book.


Mr Bugg is rocking a tall top hat and carrying a cane, clearly about to break into song and dance. He is standing on the bank of what is unquestionably a chocolate river, complete with waterfall. Two small trees dot his side of the river. On the other side, Mrs Bugg is waving her arms in a gesture of … something. She stands between two quite small trees, two candy canes growing out of the ground, and one large, fruit-bearing tree.

The text reads: “Other Bugg dramas/musicals: Buggy and the Jelly Bean Factory.”
