Springing out from an old brown suitcase, come and see a magical garden bloom to life! Join Greta Green Thumb the Gardening Clown, and her pal Nettles as they discover the wonder and adventures to be had within nature. Witness mischief-makers messing, monkey-business brewing and shenanigans shimozzling! A show full of joy with laughter, inclusion and accessibility lying at its heart. Using no spoken text alongside puppetry, clown, and a sprinkle of audience participation, you’re all invited to bring your giggles along and share in this delightful world.
‘Nettles In The Garden is a beautiful puppetry show that weaves magical storytelling and music to keep young audiences thoroughly engaged throughout. The hand crafted puppets were mesmerising.’ – SarahSharp, Theatre Delicatessen Producer
‘The show was everything I’d hoped it would be and more. Family Voice work with disadvantaged families, and we were given some tickets to support families to attend. None of the families had been to a theatre before. The show was not just extremely professional, to a very high standard, it was also very accessible for all. As there was no spoken word, the families with little English were not at a disadvantage. The atmosphere created was inclusive and welcoming. We all felt valued members of the audience and very comfortable in the environment. Lois’ skills created this inclusivity, her manner and approach is refreshing and fits perfectly with the work we do. Finally I’d just like to say how impressed we were by Lois’ versatility as an artist, performer, writer and enabler. This performance and workshop has definitely inspired us to make sure we support more families to access similar shows and art.’ – Kate West, Director of Family Voice, Sheffield
