Family Saturday – Afternoon Performance (SOLD OUT)
Open your mind and step inside Edward Lear’s brilliantly anarchic world of nonsense rhymes and limericks. Embrace the silliness and dive into a sea of words, an absurd alphabet soup of poppycock and gobbledygook.
Tired out from writing his famous Book of Nonsense, Lear falls asleep at his desk. As he dreams, he journeys through magical lands meeting a host of fantastical creatures along the way. This is Sea Legs’ 21st year anniversary production, and includes celebrated Lear characters; The Quangle Wangle, The Jumblies and the legendary Owl and the Pussy-Cat in the greatest literary love story since the Dish ran away with the Spoon.
Told with a cast of fabulous tabletop puppets, an innovative stage set and a brilliant musical soundtrack this performance features six new songs to Lear’s much celebrated poems and limericks.
Two x 45 minute performances throughout the day: 10-11am and 2-3pm. Includes an opportunity to meet the puppets at the end of each performance.
Organised to coincide with our Exhibition, Edward Lear: Moment to Moment.
