The Herd Theatre: Slime

Sorry, this event has sold out

A squishy, squelchy show for the very young.

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 Slug and Caterpillar’s world and sit in a giant garden 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.

“Great physical theatre - a really welcoming, fun and exciting way into theatre for small children”
-Theatre Bubble

“A microscopic world of epic adventure - with or without kids it’s a howling delight” -The Guardian

Watch the Slime trailer

Running time: 45 minutes show + 15 minutes stay and play.

The show uses integrated creative BSL sign language. Every show is a relaxed performance so children and their grown-ups can be as loud as they want - giggle, dance, wriggle and talk.

After the show, Slug leaves a large amount of slime for the audience to STAY AND PLAY for up to 15 minutes. The slime is made out of cornflour, salt, cream of tartar, and yellow food colouring. It is completely non-toxic and suitable for the age group!
