13 story treehouse play review
The 13-Storey Treehouse by Andy GriffithsWho wouldnt want to live in a treehouse? Especially a 13-storey treehouse that has a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of sharks, a library full of comics, a secret underground laboratory, a games room, self-making beds, vines you can swing on, a vegetable vaporiser and a marshmallow machine that follows you around and automatically shoots your favourite flavoured marshmallows into your mouth whenever it discerns youre hungry.
Two new characters – Andy and Terry – live here, make books together, and have a series of completely nutty adventures. Because: ANYTHING can happen in a 13-storey treehouse.
This is a major new series from Andy and Terry- and its the logical evolution of all their previous books. There are echoes of the Just stories in the Andy and Terry friendship, the breakaway stories in the Bad Book (the Adventures of Super Finger), theres the easy readability of the Cat on the Mat and the Big Fat Cow, and like all these books, the illustrations are as much a part of the story as the story itself.
The 13-Story Treehouse: The Treehouse Books, Book 1
I must admit that I have not read the book the play is based on but my year old companion has and he is very excited to see this stage version. He is certainly not the only one as large numbers of young people bring their grown-ups into the rapidly filling auditorium, looking forward to the show a great deal. The audience enjoys seeing Andy Ryan Dulieu and Terry Damien Avery experience the shock of realising that what they think is a rehearsal, is actually the show itself. It is obvious that the characters know they are in a play; they know the audience is there to be entertained and they know that the workings of the theatre are visible. This makes for a cleverly-constructed framework within which to stage the play, and the actors use it to their, and our, advantage by making us complicit in making the show a co-construction between actors and audience.
This was a very funny book. It's about two boys called Andy and Terry who live in a storey treehouse. They invent things and write stories. Andy does the writing and Terry does the drawings. They do some crazy things, like Terry painted a cat yellow to make it into a canary, Andy said it was silly and told Terry not to drop the cat out of the treehouse, but he did and wings popped out of the cats back, they also made a machine that destroyed brussel sprouts. The book is full of crazy, funny pictures, which will make you laugh.
