Slime (The Herd and Absolutely Cultured)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2019

In ‘Slime’ we meet two garden creatures, the slug and the caterpillar, who must work together to reach the only leaf in the garden and satisfy their hunger. It’s an immersive experience from start to end; upon arrival your ticket is swapped for a foam piece of slime, you’re asked to take off your shoes to enter the “slime garden” and at the end there is time set aside for the children to play with some slime. I particularly liked the use of sign language accompanying the few words in the show. ‘Slime’ takes you on a surreal journey of imagination and is a very accessible and well-developed piece of children’s theatre, perfect for the age range it’s aimed at.

Pleasance Pop-Up: Central Library, until 24 Aug.
