Goat and Monkey
A rollicking adventure, told through thrilling action, daft nonsense, stirring shanties, the weirdest of mechanical contraptions and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned audience involvement with foam balls and huge elastic bands!
A family show, The Pirate Cruncher is adapted from the best-selling book by Jonny Duddle and scored by multi award winning folk musician Jon Boden.
Overlooking the harbour lies the Thirsty Parrot tavern, run single-handedly by plucky and clever seven year old Emily, child inventor extraordinaire. When her tavern is raided by Captain Purplebeard and his dastardly cut-throat crew, Emily determines to take revenge, by sending the pirates on a wild goose chase for treasure.
Jonny Duddle's original children's book won the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize and musician Jon Boden is internationally known through Bellowhead and has 11 BBC Radio 2 folk awards!
