The Jabberwocky & Other Nonsense
Thursday 17th August, 5pm | Suitable for all ages | 1 hour 15mins (20min interval)
Beware the Jabberwock! The jaws that bite, The claws that catch! Run for your life! Save yourself! AHHH!
The village of Pokeytin is under threat. Their crops and cows disappear in the night. Mrs Dodos’ washing has been pinched from the line and Mr Walrus can’t find a single oyster! Who is to blame? Why the Jabberwocky of course!
Calf 2 Cow present this hilarious new adaption of Lewis Carrol’s (Alice in Wonderland) famous poem The Jabberwocky. Join them as they tell the tale of our young hero from Pokeytin, armed with their vorpal sword, brave the journey to take on the fierce Jabberwock, knock his head off and save the land! Huzzah!
But is this monster really as bad as those old locals make out? Expect the Calf 2 Cow treatment of silly multi-rolling, kicks and trips, live floor-stamping rock n roll, water buckets, sweaty actors and a giant dragon puppet, breathing actual fire! We hope.
Grab your Jubjub bird, and your best mad hat, and prepare yourself for the belly-laughing quest of a life time. This is the Jabberwocky as NEVER seen before.
Held in the stunning Arundells garden in the shadow of Salisbury Cathedral. Come early and enjoy a wander around the garden or explore in the interval.
