MEAL ONE

Helbert and his mother like doing a lot of things together but their experiment with a plum stone gets out of hand!

A boy is asleep in his bed. Suddenly he sits up in surprise and shouts:
“Who put a plum in my mouth?”
“Me, me, me!” shouts Mum.
And that is how it begins.

Meal One is an immersive and playful family show featuring Helbert, his Mum, a dog and a cat. One day they plant a plum stone in the bedroom floor. By morning, a huge tree has grown and turned the bedroom into the best tree-house-playground ever. But when they go downstairs for Meal One, the kitchen is full of tree roots busily munching through anything they can find!

Based on a 1970s children’s book by Ivor Cutler and Helen Oxenbury, Meal One is a journey of discovery filled with breath-taking projections, music and singing, dance and fun.
