Slime

Slug and Caterpillar are starving, and the only leaf left in the garden is just out of reach.

Slug thinks they should work together. Get the leaf, eat the leaf, play a game, be friends.

Caterpillar has other ideas. Slugs are gross, they’re covered in slime and they have terrible taste in music.Things get sticky.

Enter the undergrowth to SQUISH, SQUELCH and PLAY your way through this hilarious, surreal show, told with a handful of words and lots of SLIME.

Suitable for ages 2+ years.
