Kids these school holidays will finally get an answer to the age-old question.

Writer and director Dan Bain, creator of A Paintbox of Clowns and Hansel and Gretel (and director of The Court's last holiday hit Rapunzel), has filled his latest show with mime and physical comedy in a play that unfolds in the style of a silent movie.

Why Are My Parents So Boring? follows the hilarious consequences when a mischievous youngster (Laura Daniel) sets out to teach her parents (David Ladderman and Kathleen Burns) to have fun while she is at home during the school holidays.

Bain describes Why Are My Parents So Boring? as “a play about playing - taking ordinary or boring things and turning them into something magical through the power of imagination.”

Recommended for ages 3+, this highly visual play is fun for all the family, suitable for all from very young to young in spirit!

Duration approx. 50min.
