Pigeon Theatre present
Today it is Raining
a show for 3-5 year olds.

(Performances also at 11am & 3pm

It is raining. And grey. We are stuck inside with nothing to do.

Today it is Raining
is a show about the weather, and in particular bad weather, and about reading books, and in particular books about bad weather. It will rain, there will be wind, and a storm with thunder and lightning and it will be grey.  And two performers/storytellers will be stuck inside with an audience, and the only thing to do is to read books about the weather.  And there is a drip and a puddle that is getting bigger.  And there is a wet spider and a wet doctor and wet books.  And the stories and the characters in the books are slowly taking over.

Warning:  you may get wet.

30 min show with 15 min post-show playing. Very limited capacity.

Our work is experimental and interactive we use non-traditional spaces and unconventional social engagement to create shared intimacies between ourselves and our audience.
