Cabbage Heart, the latest show for five to ten year olds from Theatre Alibi, features drawing and painting live on stage in a magical art adventure which tours to the egg theatre from Thursday 15 November to Saturday 17 November.
Cabbage Heart tells the story of Jelly, who loves drawing but lacks confidence. One day she wanders into a secret overgrown garden full of strange things – plants made out of gloves and shoes, an enormous strawberry and an old woman calling for help. The old woman turns out to be a world-famous sculptor called Mags who shows Jelly a whole new way of looking at the world.
Cabbage Heart explores how you can do what you like best, if you only stop thinking you can’t, whether you are 5, 10 or 110 years of age. This funny and touching show features amazing puppets and props and live music played on an electric guitar.
The production is written by Theatre Alibi Associate Daniel Jamieson, who has written many of Theatre Alibi’s successful shows for children and adults including Deep Down Cowboys, A Flying Visit, High-Muck-a-Muck, Teapot, Lost & Found and How to Hug Trees, all shows which have enjoyed highly successful visits to the egg theatre in recent years.
Described by former Children’s Laureate and writer of the West End hit War Horse, Michael Morpurgo as being “responsible for some of the most innovative work in British theatre in recent years”, Theatre Alibi has a nationwide reputation for imaginative work for families. The company tours to some of the best-known theatres in the country and to primary schools in the south west.
