A surreal, 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, an eccentric plastic surgeon, who has connections with the nose's past and sinister intentions for its future. 

Staring Pete Shenton (New Art Club) and directed by Esther Simpson (metro-boulot-dodo) this unlikely trail of a show comes straight from the strange brain of David Parkin. Expect mountains of mucus, toe tapping tunes and two nostrils full of magic.

“The show was a wonderful experience for children and adults alike. From the physical comedy of Shenton to the Disneyesque facial expressions of Mealing, coupled with the well-crafted songs and some tasteful takes on deep subject matter, meant that I had a lovely, fun-filled poignant hour.”
Daniel Nicholas, Tetrad Collective.

* Please note that the 2.30pm show is a Relaxed Performance.
