A squishy, squelchy show for the very young presented by The Herd

Thurs 28 May, 2pm & 4pm

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: For ages 2-5 yrs & their families
Running Time: 45 minutes + 15 minutes of free play

‘Packed with invention and laughs…Inclusivity runs right through this piece.’
