Description

On top of their biggest haul, friendly fishermen Deddy and Winchem discover the cursed Red Herring. Local legend decrees: the catch goes back to the sea, or the sea wreaks revenge on the starving village of Little Meanswell. A semi-nautical, supernatural comedy full of folklore, fantasy and the rural coast. Past praise for Gardyloo: 'Immediate thumbs-up... Wonderful' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Funny and sweet... silly and surreal' **** (ToDoList.org.uk).

Tightly written storytelling and comedy songs, perfectly delivered. A wellie full of fun that is bound to raise a smile.

If you combined a nautical version of Dylan Thomas’s ‘Under Milk Wood’ with a family friendly, ‘Mighty Boosh’ feel and a few fish puns, you might get close to describing this sweet and surreal comedy. Set in a seemingly nondescript coastal village, two bumbling fisherman stumble upon a red herring...
