A SQUISHY

SQUELCHY

SHOW 

FOR THE

VERY YOUNG

Being a slug is hard. 

Everyone thinks you’re disgusting.

Slug and Caterpillar are starving, and the only leaf left in the garden is just out of reach. Slug thinks they should work together. Get the leaf, eat the leaf, play a game, be friends. Caterpillar has other ideas. Slugs are gross, they’re covered in slime and they have terrible taste in music.

Things get sticky.

 

Enter the undergrowth to SQUISH, SQUELCH and PLAY your way through this hilarious, surreal show for 2-5 years and their families, told with a handful of words and lots of SLIME.

AGE GUIDE: 2-5 YEARS

DURATION: 45 MINS + 15 MINS SLIME PLAY

ACCESSIBILITY

SLIME only has 12 words in it, and every word is spoken and signed by the characters in British Sign Language.

Every performance of SLIME is relaxed - the audience area is well lit, it's ok to come, go and make noise if you need to.
