IYAF 2017 award winners Mumblecrust Theatre are delighted to be coming back to Kingston. Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory, a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights flee in terror... Can a humble nun defeat the beast? Two muddle-headed storytellers use breathtaking puppetry, spine-tingling live music and general tomfoolery in a dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old.

Mumblecrust Theatre is an award-winning theatre company based in the South West of England. Co-Artistic Directors Katie Underhay and Anthony Burbridge came together to fill a niche in children’s theatre, where slightly older children often get left out. From this collaboration, The Tale of the Cockatrice was born. Throughout 2018, Mumblecrust has been touring the UK (with support from Arts Council England) and will be creating a brand new family show ready for 2019.

Winner: IYAF Best of Brighton Fringe: Children and Family Show and Best Newcomer to Brighton Fringe 2017
