Nicobobbinus, a children’s book written by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, has been adapted for the stage by Red Ladder Theatre Company and DumbWise and will come to The Berry Theatre on Saturday, February 7 at 2pm.
Directed by John Ward, and with a cast of five actor musicians, this adventure brings the story to life with original songs, singing and that Python-esque wit.
In a land where dragons are locked in boiler rooms and mountains move like oceans, Nicobobinus and his best friend Rosie embark on a quest to cure him of a golden curse. Obstructed by pirates and savage nine-foot monks, will they find the cure or be forced to return to their home in Venice?
This adaptation stays true to Jones’ work. He says: ‘Nicobobinus is a magical and charming character and will jump off the page. I saw an in-development version of the show last year at Greenwich Theatre and was blown away by its energy.’
Suitable for six-year-olds. Tickets: £6-8, family offers available. Visit theberrytheatre.co.uk
