Based on an old Russian folk tale, a little old man (grumpy old geezer!) and a little old woman (nagging old bat!) hate the sight of each other!

Then one day the little old man grows the biggest turnip in the world and the two set abouttrying to pull it out of the ground. Hilarity ensues as they, with the help of the audience,learn to work together.

With aspects of mime, mask, Commedia del’ Arte and warped imagination, this tale willtake you into the depths of the deep, dark woods and back!

Directed by Peter Court and Bryan HilesPerformed by Bryan Hiles and Clare Mortimer

Show Running time: 45 minutesSuitable for kids aged 3 to 300

The show runs at 11am from 4 to 8 October 2016.
