Book Magpie Characters

Stilt Walkers

One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl, four for a boy. Five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told. Magpies have always had a place in British folklore and the nursery rhymes sung
in the school playground. It is considered unlucky to see one Magpie…hence…”Good morning Mr Magpie, hows the wife?”, and lucky, to see two.
Inspired by the faded decadence of the 1920s, the novels “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “Brideshead Revisited” by Evelyn Waugh, the monochromic beauty of these unusual looking birds, which symbolise a type of “Englishness”.
Hazy days, long evenings, cricket and black tie balls. The magpies walk around your event, silent and mysterious, beware your glittery possessions, as they have a reputation for stealing!

Standard Length of Performance: 3 x 30 minute walkabout sets.
