Cabbage Heart (2012)
For 5-11 year olds. By Daniel Jamieson.
More than anything Jelly loves drawing - on pavements, on walls, on the beach, everywhere. But she still thinks she’s rubbish at art! Then one day she finds a secret garden full of giant ferns, palm trees and strange, beautiful cabbages. And stranger things too – plants made out of gloves and shoes, a stone sculpture and an old woman calling for help…. The old woman is Mags, a world famous sculptor! Little does Jelly know that making friends with Mags will change the way she looks at things forever…
Cabbage Heart shows how you can do what you like best if you only stop thinking you can’t, whether you’re 5,6,7,8,9,10,11 or 111. A magical adventure with music, puppetry and lots and lots of drawing and painting live on stage!
