An enchanting musical fairy tale with augmented reality surprises.
A boy sleeps in his bed. The house around him creaks. An owl hoots. Clouds drift across the brightening sky. Quietly, softly, we explore the house and garden as the sun begins to rise.
Meal One is an immersive and playful music-led family show featuring Helbert, his Mum, a dog and a cat. We follow them as they prepare for the day by planting a plum stone in the bedroom floor. Naturally, a huge tree quickly fills the room, turning it into the best tree-house-playground ever. But when they go downstairs for Meal One – the first meal of the day – they discover a kitchen full of tree roots busily munching through anything edible they can find.
Based on a 1970s children's book by Ivor Cutler and Helen Oxenbury, Meal One is a musical journey of discovery filled with breath-taking projections, singing, unexpected transformations and augmented reality surprises.
All performances are 'relaxed' and accessible, with captioning built into the production.
