The Enormous Turnip (2015)

17 November 2015 – 6 December 2015 @ Drama Theatre, School of the Arts


I Theatre's unique brand of professional actors, unforgettable songs, mask, puppetry and theatre magic brings you the story of a tiny mouse - and an enormous turnip, returning after a very successful sell-out run in 2013.

Little Eek the Mouse's dream is to be noticed. But Eek is SO small. 

Diggory the Gardener's dream is to win a prize - any prize for his vegetables. And then in his garden, a turnip just grows - and grows - and grows! 

Where does it come from? Who is strong enough to pull this Enormous Turnip out of the ground? And what will they do with it then?

A fast paced, colourful, interactive play, carefully designed for the younger audience with cute characters, fun and memorable songs, and a clear moral message for everyone.
