“Natasha Sutton Williams oozes talent… startling, edgy and impressive performance.” (Musical Theatre Review)
 

This comedy gleefully annihilates the father of modern psychology in a flurry of cross-dressing and dick jokes, to a live soundscape of looped voices and piano.

"A perfect family Christmas treat"

Cast off by his fellow penguins, Alby finds himself all alone at the South Pole. When he stumbles across Santa’s list of presents left behind in the snow, Alby realises that Christmas isn’t going to happen unless the list is reunited with its owner. But it’s going to take one very brave penguin to save the day. An enchanting story full of music, puppetry and one very special penguin.

Arts e-Live (Mole Valley District Council)

 

A real celebration of multiple art forms... I’m really impressed by the scale and ambition of this project!

(Francesca Martinez: comedian, writer, actress)

Wow, what a turn around for what seems like a big project made of many small moving parts to develop into a massively successful online event. 

(Paul Hartnoll: musician, composer, founder member of Orbital)

A massive communal effort and one that brought great pride. I’m struck by the diversity of content and the initiative to respond to the pandemic by making sure their festival still went ahead.
