“Operation Lily-Liver is a very funny shadow play.  Poor Lionel Lily-Liver has had a cold for three days.  His mother thinks that’s too long so she takes him to hospital where he is immediately operated on by a team of dangerous doctors.  You’ll shudder and squeal as the doctors go to work on their reluctant patient with hammers and saws.  Can Dr Failes, Dr Gung-Ho, Dr Tremblebath and Dr Clunkett save Lionel?  Can anyone save Lionel from the doctors?  In a shadow play most of the action takes place behind a transparent screen, with lighting being used to create clear silhouettes.  Sound effects also play a major part in the success of the production.”
