Is Tiddler telling the truth?
Will Monkey find his Mummy?
Will George The Giant make lots of friends?
Can the old lady really squash and squeeze all those animals in?

★★★★★ ‘An hour-long feast of storytelling that thrills children and parents alike. A masterpiece’ Broadway Baby

‘TO CALL THIS SHOW LIVELY WOULD BE A WHOPPING UNDERSTATEMENT. Packed with gleeful songs and jolly good fun.’ The Guardian

A children’s treat that adults too can guiltlessly enjoy. It may only be a tiddler, but this show has a big heart and is brimming with inventiveness.’ A Younger Theatre

★★★★ ‘Mesmerising’ FEST

★★★★ ‘Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s tales are lovingly brought to life.  A perfect children’s show’ The British Theatre Guide
