I'm Still Hungry!!!

Moby Duck presents... I’m Still HUNGRY!!!

I'm Still Hungry

When a tiger’s just eaten your grandmother and still looks hungry, it’s a good idea to run — as far and as fast as you can. But when you’re stuck at the top of a tall tree, and the tiger’s climbing up towards you, licking his lips, and there’s not a woodcutter in sight, you have to think quicker than you’ve ever thought before …

Korea’s best-loved story makes Little Red Riding Hood look as though she’s still on the nursery slopes. Moby Duck’s latest east-west collaboration combines storytelling, physical theatre, live music, puppetry and wild, exuberant Korean humour in the captivating mixture that is the company’s unique, unmissable performance style.

Suitable for families with children age 4+ and will last for approximately 1 hour.

Tickets are £4.50 each from Emma on 01832 205314.
