norfox, the Library Theatre Company’s young people’s theatre company, are back with their latest production by playwright Carl Grose.
When Mr. and Mrs. Mungus have a baby it isn’t the bouncing blue-eyed boy they were hoping for. After a two-and-a-half year pregnancy, Mini Mungus gives birth to a monster – one with an accelerated growth rate and an insatiable appetite for anything that moves (including joggers). But when sinister military scientists become intent on cloning an army of giant babies from the giant, he breaks his chains and escapes. The world can only watch in horror as he embarks on learning how to walk and rampant destruction. Who will stop this freak of nature? Who will decide his tragic fate? And who, more importantly, will change his nappy?
Not sure if Gargantua is for you? We popped down to rehearsals to see how the production was coming together…
Also we have a lovely selection of rehearsal photos by norfox’s very own Jess Donn for you to look at (below, right).
