About the play
A hilarious play about a smelly pig who travels to outer space!! Actors play a variety of characters, including aliens, with movement and dance adding to the high-energy performance. This production is based on a puppet play originally written by children during a workshop and we have tried to keep the simplicity of their writing intact. The story touches upon friendship, adventure, owning up to your mistakes, taking responsibility and of course the ‘swine flu’!
