The Nose that Nobody Picked

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Adapted for stage from the book by David Parkin 

A rip snorting yarn for all the family … with songs … and snot

One day Christopher a keen, but unorthodox gardener, finds a living nose raised by slugs in his garden.

In their hunt to find Little Big Nose a face, they encounter Doctor Skinner (Pete Shenton, New Art Club), an eccentric plastic surgeon, who has connections to the nose’s past, and sinister intentions for his future.

Directed by Esther Simpson (metro-boulot-dodo), this unlikely trail of a show comes straight from the strange brain of author David Parkin.

Expect mountains of mucus, toe-tapping tunes and two nostrils full of magic.

Shortlisted for the James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Award 2017

Suitable for ages 5+

A free fun workshop is available for ticketholders from 12.45 – 1.45pm.  Suitable for children aged 5 – 11 the workshop with author David Parkin will look at fun ways to create movement and songs/poetry around the theme of spring.
