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!

Table Mates

A new play by Daniel Jamieson

Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.

They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.
