★★★ 'life-affirmingly brilliant.' The Scotsman
'The best thing about the show was that he made it about us' Young audience member

Polarbear makes things up: stories, jokes, adventures – he’s a master maker-upper. But where did it all begin?

Mouth Open, Story Jump Out is about the moment that started it all, and how one little decision set off a chain reaction that changed his life forever. International assassins, secret codes, dog-eating boa constrictors and more emerge when a father disappears and a boy discovers a talent for telling tales.

An inspiring show about the creative potential inside all of us by one of the UK’s most respected spoken-word artists.
