Some scary stories are scary. Some others are fun.
Boo! is a funny scary story, told by an actor and … by a door.
The door is a border: on one side the Green Woods, and the Black Woods on the other.
The Thief, the Wolf, the Witch, and – the worst of them all – the Boogey Man all live in the Black Woods.
The Green Woods is home to a Mom, round like a cake, a strong Dad, seven brothers, as big as closets… and also a little child, Bartolomeo.
He, together with his inseparable blanket, will have to face the creatures of the Black Woods…defeating them one by one.

Following a narrative course of departures and returns, amusing and reassuring like a nursery rhyme, the typical fears of small children are taken to the stage.
They are given a name, to make the little spectators understand that these fears belong to everybody, and, with a little courage, they can be defeated and forgotten.
Boo! teaches that, sometimes, the best weapon against fear is laughter.
