Grandma and Grandpa frog are planning a surprise party for their grandfrogs. In a manner in which this reviewer is gradually becoming accustomed, with respect to stories for the very small, they do take their sweet time about it. And so the key to a show aimed at the tiny, as well as PMLD and ASD audiences, is how well that merrily wasted time is spent. Well, there are bubbles, songs, plenty to see, things to touch and lots of sensory audience participation. My little co-reviewer is still grappling with some theatrical conventions, but she gave it her full attention throughout – which, as parents and carers well know, is no faint praise – and greatly enjoyed the jumping at the end.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 21 Aug.
