The Mole Who Knew It Was None Of His Business (Kipper Tie In Association With C Theatre)

By | Published on Monday 8 August 2011

Who doesn’t find poo funny? That’s the logic behind ‘The Mole Who Knew It Was None Of His Business’ and it works, mostly. The endearing mole travels about looking for the animal who pooed on his head, and those we meet are of variable quality: the cowboy horse and Somerset cow delight, but the hippy goat is a good idea that doesn’t work. Perky, if sometimes inaudible songs keep the kids happy but the jokes for adults fall flat. Great fun when poo focused – the faces of the animals doing their business are wonderful and the poo props delightfully icky – this show nonetheless feels ten minutes too long for a young audience. Needs less padding and more poo.
