2 men and 1 woman looking at each other confused.

A Latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming!

In the village, a Latke, a fried potato pancake, is born screaming. Well, wouldn’t you scream if you were thrown into a pan of boiling oil?

The Latke jumps from the boiling pan and races through the wintery village, deep in the throes of festive preparations. Lost amongst the snowy landscape, the Christmas lights and pine trees, will our Latke ever find where it belongs?

This new adaptation of the absurdly funny Lemony Snicket story is vividly brought to life in Tall Stories’ unique physical style, with live music, lots of laughs and a screaming potato pancake…

A show about being yourself and appreciating others,Lemony Snicket’s Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming is the perfect winter family show.
