Award-winning silliness and choose-your-own-adventure poems for the whole family as you work to transform your writing skills. Featuring odes to stinky pirates, murderous sheep and deadly mouthwash. You'll be surprised by what you learn along the way! This show is jam-packed full of audience interaction, with a narrative that's shaped by you as an audience. Will you have what it takes to defeat your poetry overlord? Can you make poetry fun again? 'The English teacher you wish you had' **** (Fest). 'Emphatic, playful... Terrific' **** (Guardian). 'He's not even a real king!' (Sam, aged 9).
