  • David Baddiel's AniMalcolm

    Relaxed Performance icon
    Wednesday 15th Aug, 11.30am
    Malcolm doesn't like animals, which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip. And there he is, on the bus, heading to... oh no. A farm... full of animals! After an adventure unlike any other, Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone. But will he end up the same as before? A vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical, combining physical theatre and outstanding storytelling style to bring Baddiel's magical and wonderfully comic bestseller to the stage. 5+ (5 and older)

'So we're clear. You know, right? You know I’m not that kind of person.' Sometimes we can’t find the right words. Sometimes the wrong word just slips out. Sometimes the right words become the wrong words. Sometimes that ruins everything. When a misfiring joke turns their life upside down, B sets off on a surreal journey looking for answers. In an age when technology multiplies every mistake, can we find a way to understand each other? A razor-sharp satire about the search for a sure footing in an uncertain world from BAFTA-nominated Vinay Patel.
