Aliens Love Underpants (Big Wooden Horse and Nick Brooke Limited)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

Any show that starts by asking the audience what their favourite pants are immediately promises a fun and silly time. Adapted from the book of the same title, this clever stage show features only four cast members who effortlessly take on the roles of multiple characters. It’s guaranteed the original songs will be stuck in your head for days as the show ends with a sing-a-long featuring ‘hairy pants’ and ‘shiny pants’. Highly entertaining for both children and adults, the audience is even treated to seeing the famous “Henry VII’s underpants” and “Kylie Minogue’s hot pants”. Major. If you have ever wondered where all your underpants disappear to, this mad and lively show has your answer.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 22 Aug, 11.30am.
