Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company are bringing their re-potted version of the famous children’s story, The Enormous Turnip to The Brewery. Following their sell-out shows of 3 Little Pigs, The Little Red Hen, Goldilocks & The 3 Bears and The Emperor’s New Clothes, this unswervingly energetic company returns with a brilliant adaptation featuring wonderful puppetry, live music and massive vegetables!

Living in their tiny shed squeezed in amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s amazing prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything! Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed, try for one more champion vegetable and one more trophy!

But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, bigger than the dog, bigger than you and me put together! It’s gigantic, it’s blocking out the light, it’s roots are under the house and it’s taking over! Help save the day as we all pull together to get this enormous turnip out of the ground before it takes over the planet!

“I wish I was five again. Then I could let out unselfconscious whoops of hilarity and yelps of excitement. As it is, watching this delightful piece of theatre unfold, is almost enough to liberate adult inhibitions….A truly enchanting hour for children – and their parents.” Roger Malone, The Stage newspaper
