Dinosaurs And All That Rubbish (Roustabout Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 17 August 2022

Based on the children’s book by Michael Foreman, this show will bring you socialist dinosaurs, rockets and a lot of laughs, plus an abundance of creative costumes and interactive songs, including one with the brilliant addition of British sign language. The environmental tale also touches on key themes of pollution, climate change and corruption. The show begins with a man wanting to see the stars and so he asks his workers to build him a rocket. When he leaves earth it’s a landfill of rubbish, and while he is gone, the dinosaurs awaken from a very long sleep. Children in the audience were entertained for the whole hour, stamping along to help the dinosaurs clean up the earth, and laughing at the silly jokes. 

Assembly George Square Studios, until 21 Aug.
