In the middle of the night there is a noise – a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood. A line of troll-prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark forest…. 

When a grotesque gang of greedy trolls steal all the village’s pets (including Nikki’s favourite goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third), who is going to come to the poor animals’ rescue? 

This high energy, comedy adventure show sees performance poet Dommy B (BBC ‘Rhyme Rocket’) collaborating with live music by multi-instrumentalist Sergio Volumen.  Directed by Kevin Dyer (Writers’ Guild of Great Britain ‘Best Play for Children and Young People’) and created in association with Action Transport Theatre, expect lyrics, laughs and lots of troll-tastic terror!

Written and performed by Dommy B who has previously performed at Z-arts with The Dragon Who Hates Poetry.

“The stuff of golden childhood memories” – The Daily Telegraph

“From the moment he started to speak we were totally captivated. The incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery and the subject matter made him irresistible.” – Manchester Evening News

Suitable for children aged 5+ and their families.
