The Dong with a Luminous Nose

A Cubic Feet and Little Angel Theatre co-production, in association with Monstro Theatre Based on the poem by Edward Lear

Fri 8 October 2021
6:00 pm
- 7:15 pm


“This is a deliciously visceral experience that leaves the young audience with their skin tingling and their curiosity piqued”
– The Guardian

Edward is a bit of an oddball. A shy and troubled boy, he is always watching the horizon, waiting for something to happen. Then one day “the Jumblies” arrive, and his life is turned upside down… then shaken about a bit… and then a bit more!

With a huge and colourful cast of abstract and figurative puppets, this absurd take on Lear’s nonsense classic explores that difficult age between being a child and becoming an adult.

Dancing chairs, a troublesome telephone and a swarm of shape-shifters all play their part in this tale of a lonely boy who has difficulty facing up to the facts.

Brought to you by the designer/director and composer partnership behind Little Angel Theatre’s Alice in Wonderland and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.

Venue: Ditchling Village Hall. Suitable for ages 7+

The museum will be selling ice creams, popcorn, crips, and non-alcholic drinks at the hall and will be accepting card payments only for this.

The museum requires all adults and children over the age of 11 years old to wear a face mask when they are inside the village hall.

Parking is available at the Village Hall and also at the recreation ground on Lewes Road in Ditchling.
