Simon lives in the sock drawer with all the other socks; it’s a cosy place but he feels lonely and unloved. All the other inhabitants go out on adventures and Simon longs to find the perfect friend to roller skate, bounce and hula hoop with; but, as Spotty tells him, Simon is odd.
Then Ted offers his help and thus begins Simon’s search for a stripy matching pair. He meets all manner of possible partners,
he certainly learns a lot and finally discovers Simone.
It turns out though, that his matching pair does not share his thirst for the great outdoors.
Poor Simon; is he doomed to a life without a partner or …
With Nick East’s captivating sock scenarios, this is funny story, about friendship, difference and preconceptions that will make listeners laugh and think; and the ending – yes it is a happy one – will bring delight and a definite feel good factor.
