The Dong with a luminous nose

A Cubic Feet and Monstro Theatre co-production, in association with Little Angel Theatre

Edward is a bit of an oddball. A shy and troubled boy, he is always watching the horizon, waiting for something to happen. Then one day “the Jumblies” arrive, and his life is turned upside down… then shaken about a bit… and then a bit more!

With a huge and colourful cast of abstract and figurative puppets, this absurd take on Lear’s nonsense classic explores that difficult age between being a child and becoming an adult. Brought to you by the designer/director and composer partnership.

Toured to: Theatre Clwyd, The Woodville, Leatherhead Theatre, Mansfield Place, The egg, Trinity Theatre, Ditchling Museum, Gladstone Theatre, Uppingham School, Artsdepot, Taliesin Arts Centre, Gatehouse Theatre, Leeds Carriageworks, South Mill Arts, Winchester Theatre Royal, Cygnet Theatre and Kenton Theatre.

“This is a deliciously visceral experience that leaves the young audience with their skin tingling and their curiosity piqued”
– The Guardian
