In A Pickle: Oily Cart, The Royal Shakespeare Company

Oily Cart, the leading creators of theatre for the very young, presents this interactive, multi-sensory wonderland experience. This co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company was first performed as part of the World Shakespeare Festival 2012. The show is an entrancing tale combining smells, textures, enchanting live music and beautiful costumes. For the very first time, toddlers are catapulted into the colourful world of Shakespeare's imagination and the music of his language.

The adventure begins in the woolly pastures of the shepherdess and her flock of little sheep. She is having a party to celebrate the sheep shearing. When she discovers a lost baby, the audience is called on to help solve the clues about where the baby comes from. Together they travel over the salty sea to the sad court where a happy ending is found.

Suitable for ages 2-5 years.
