Mr McGee and the Biting Flea

Six whimsical Pamela Allen stories are woven together in the much loved Mr McGee and the Biting Flea by Patch Theatre Company.

The enduring work will hit the road in March embarking on the company’s largest ever national tour as well as touring the popular work to New Zealand for the first time.
Prepare to be mesmerized and laugh at the same time with Mr McGee and the Biting Flea. Using an assortment of props and found objects, the three performers bring the stories to sweet, music-infused life while offering powerful connections to the inner lives of children. This wonderful production features adaptations of Pamela Allen’s stories: Mr McGee, Alexander’s Outing, Belinda, Brown Bread and Honey, Mary Elizabeth’s House and Mr McGee and the Biting Flea.
This multi-award winning production has been enchanting children around Australia since 2007. It has won the National Helpmann Award for ‘Best Children’s Presentation’ in 2008, the Adelaide Critics Circle Award for Innovation in 2007 and the Australian Performing Arts Centre’s National Drovers Award for ‘Touring Excellence’ in 2007.

A wonderful experience for children emphasising the magic of theatre. Beautifully performed, Mr McGee and the Biting Flea wistfully evokes an innocent, handmade and literally playful era of storytelling and song that contrasts with our own age of electronic nannying via TV and DVD.” Sydney Sunday Herald
