Being a slug is hard. Everyone thinks you’re disgusting.

Slug and Caterpillar are starving, and the only leaf left in the garden is just out of reach. Slug thinks they should work together. Get the leaf, eat the leaf, play a game, be friends. Caterpillar has other ideas. Slugs are gross, they’re covered in slime and they have terrible taste in music.

Things get sticky.

Enter the undergrowth to SQUISH, SQUELCH and PLAY your way through this hilarious, surreal show for 2-5 years and their families, told with a handful of words and lots of SLIME by theatre company The Herd.

★★★★★ ‘A surreal journey of imagination… perfect for the age range it’s aimed at.’ – Three Weeks

★★★★ ‘Packed with invention and laughs… Inclusivity runs right through the piece.’ – The Stage

‘A microscopic world of epic adventure… with or without kids it’s a howling delight.’ – The Guardian

SLIME only has 12 words in it, and every word is spoken and signed by the characters in British Sign Language. Every performance of SLIME is relaxed – it’s ok to come, go and make noise if you need to.
