I The Adventures Of Pinocchio, MacRobert Arts Centre, Stirling. Box Office: 01785 461081. Tue 14—Thurs 16 May. 10.303m; 2pm. £2.50. Ages 8+. ‘Once upon a time there was a piece of wood that laughed and cried like a

child . . .’ And so begins the mischievous little puppet‘s transformation into a real boy and his discovery ol the good and bad in being human. Visible Fictions‘s new version is a dark and bewitching tale that goes beyond Disney and right to the heart of the classic table.
