Stuck begins when Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree. He throws his shoe into the tree to free the kite, but the shoe gets stuck too. He tosses his other shoe into the tree and that gets stuck along with the cat, the kitchen sink, an orangutan and a whale-among other things. Featuring original music and audience participation, this story by Oliver Jeffers has been adapted into an exciting new production by the team behind the wonderful Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.
