Nannie Brambles lives with Carpet, her basset hound « who hates children». Every morning, she watches her favorite soap opera, « A pink rose on the wall », and then mows her lawn. 

Leopold is sent outside by his grandmother to take a breath of fresh air and clear out the thickets swarming with brambles.

He hears snickering … and scratches himself!

When night falls, Nannie Brambles prepares a soup…

…a nettle soup!

Fear and its chimeras hide within the shade of the scratching and thorny brambles. Where to find consolation when you’re six years old and your grandmother terrifies you?

A shadow puppet theatre that keeps the spectators sitting on the edge of their seats.
