Zoo Co Presents Messy
Zoo Co present MESSY, “A messy show for messy kids with messy brains”.
When Daisy is chosen to look after Mr Twiggy the class hamster, Daisy (and the rest of her class) worry she might lose him. So she’s very glad when best friend Beth decides to stay over to lend a hand. But things don’t quite go to plan… Can Daisy use the adventures of “The Mess” to find Mr Twiggy and prove everyone wrong?
Multi-award winning Zoo Co present a magical and visual story complete with original music, puppets, tap-dancing and even a trip to the moon! All the while celebrating the stories that explode from “The Mess”.
The story follows a day in the life of our protagonist Daisy who has ADHD.
Performed by a Deaf and hearing cast with Sign Supported English, Messy has been created in partnership with ADHD Foundation and all performances are relaxed performances. Audiences are welcome to stand up, sit down, wriggle around, leave or come back in when they need, there aren’t any loud noises and house lights will stay on in the theatre.
Since winning the Les Enfants Terribles Award with their debut production The Hive, Zoo Co have developed a reputation for creating original and innovative theatre, bringing their ‘explosive visual imagination’ to all their work. Messy is Zoo Co’s seventh production with previous productions including Monotone Man commissioned by Lyric Hammersmith and
Sirens – Three Weeks Editor’s Choice Award winner 2018.
