Living on an allotment in a tiny house the size of a shed, Mr and Mrs Chickweed love to grow gigantic prize-winning vegetables and they want to show them off for the last time before they retire.
But they just can’t resist planting one last seed …… which grows and grows into a turnip so HUGE, so ENORMOUS it threatens their house with disaster! Can anyone help them pull up the Enormous Turnip?
After their mischievous and fun-filled version of The Elves And The Shoemaker, Stuff and Nonsense return to Warwick Arts Centre with their unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in a re‐potted version of the world‐famous children’s story.
Suitable for those aged 2-10. Running time: 85 mins.
“Puppetry, live music and good old‐fashioned charm are sprouting up left, right and centre.” The Stage
“Energetic acting, puppetry and an inventive set …… You’ll leave wishing all cauliflowers could talk.” The Londonist
Commissioned by Lighthouse, Poole, in association with Salisbury Playhouse and support from The Merlin Theatre.
