Once upon a time in a far off imaginary place... a giant fell out of the sky.

'There were roofs down, windows blown in' says Puppet Granny Tina Henderson, puffing on a Malboro Light.
'It wasnae funny'.


Blind Summit returned to Edinburgh with their first new show since The Table, a puppet docudrama that tells the true story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

We looked behind the scenes and uncovered a dark tale of gambling, greed, theft and murder.
