Based on an old Russian folk tale, a little old man (grumpy old geezer!) and a little old woman (nagging old bat!) hate the sight of each other!

One day the little old man determines to grow the largest turnip in the world to prove he is the best gardener ever! The Old Geezer and the Old Bat must then set about trying to pull it out of the ground. Hilarity ensues as they, with the help of the audience, finally learn to work together.

With aspects of mime, mask, Commedia del’ Arte and warped imagination, this tale will take you into the depths of the deep, dark woods and back!

The Great Big Enormous Turnip is a 45 minute romp through said woods and warped minds, written by Peter Court of Creative Madness and co-directed by him and Bryan Hiles who have delighted audiences with other stories such as A Froggy Fairytale, Rumpelstiltskin and A Mariner’s Tale.

Performed by Bryan Hiles and Cara Roberts.

Suitable for kids aged 3 to 12!
