People are more than happy to shell out a lot of money to see a pair of socks, it has been reported.
The tour currently being made by the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre is a roaring success, according to the Shields Gazette, which explained the popularity of the show as it heads to Tyne and Wear's Customs House for a performance for families.
The show's performer and creator Kev Sutherland, who is known for his work as a cartoonist with the Beano, explained several of the sketches while in character, including one where the socks
perform Romeo and Juliet, with one thinking it's a comedy and the other believes it to be a drama.
Commenting on their success, the left sock said: "We have the market for falsetto, slightly sweary sock comedy all to ourselves.
"We used to just perform to adults but we've tailored our show so it's suitable for children over 12."
The Customs House is a premier arts centre in South Tyneside, attracting high-quality acts from around the country to develop the cultural side of the north-east.
