The Elves and the Shoemakers
People always need shoes. But it’s hard to make shoes when you’re cold and hungry and you’re down to your last piece of leather. What will the shoemakers do? Help creeps into their house in the dead of night, when the elves come out to play.

“This wonderfully engaging piece tells the traditional tale of two kind elves who help a penniless shoemaker and his wife out of their troubles. Mike Kenny’s play gently explores themes of generosity and greed in the days leading up to Christmas.” -Kildare Nationalist, UK
