Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray, songs by Christine White

Spike Milligan’s all-time favourite story comes to life in a new stage show by Tim Bray Productions. Share Tim and Rose’s madcap adventure through the great black forest and into Badjelly’s castle. Cheer as Tim and Rose set off to search for Lucy. Laugh with Dinglemouse, Mud-wiggle and Binkle-bonk. And then Boo at Badjelly, as she captures Tim and Rose. Will she turn them into sausages? Will they escape? Who will save them?

“It is ingenious, unbridled fun and only the most bitter curmudgeon would even bother to deride the book for such trifles as spelling, grammar and justified narrative. Throughout his career Milligan broke the rules, or at best disregarded them, to greatly charming effect and that anarchic approach is heartily embraced by playwright/director Tim Bray and company’s production these holidays.” - Review, Nik Smythe, Theatreview
