The play takes place on an antique kitchen dresser. The Gingerbread Man, newly baked by the Big Ones, meets Salt, Pepper and Herr Von Cuckoo, who lives in the cuckoo-clock. He has a sore throat which is ruining his "cuckoos", thus threatening to land him in the dreaded dustbin. The Gingerbread Man's efforts to help Cuckoo's sore throat are hampered by the villainous scavenger Sleek the Mouse and by The Old Bag - an old tea-bag who lives in the tea pot on the top shelf.

Late at night, on the kitchen dresser, the newly-baked Gingerbread Man tries to help the cuckoo-clock cuckoo regain his lost voice, before the Big Ones come down to breakfast. This means bravely facing up to a cantankerous tea-bag and a hungry mouse. This is the storybook version of David Wood's international hit play for children.
