What doesn't Malcom like?
a) Fossils b) Vegetables or c) Animals
Malcolm doesn’t really like animals which is a problem as his family are crazy about them. The house is full of pets but what Malcom really wants is a new laptop for his birthday. Instead he gets a pet chinchilla and a ticket for the annual three-day school trip to a farm… full of animals.
During the most bizarre weekend adventure, Malcolm learns what it’s like to BE an animal and starts to appreciate just how amazing animals really are. He also learns that sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself. But will he end up the same as before?
Six actors portray 35 different characters – including more than 20 animals – combining outstandingphysical performances with great music, puppetry and a gloriously funny script to create one of the biggest family theatre events of the year.
David Baddiel’s bestseller has won rave reviews and massive sales, delighting young readers as they follow Malcolm’s weird and wonderful journey of discovery about life as an animal.
Story Pocket Theatre was formed in 2013 and had instant success. The company won the Primary Times Children’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014 and the coveted Three Weeks Editors’ Choice Award at Edinburgh in 2015.
Faithful to Baddiel’s novel, this production is full of witty dialogue, ingenious puppetry, hugely energetic performances and a score that reflects the characteristics of all the animals Malcolm meets along the way. Suitable for everyone ages 5 years and above.
