Description

A young and lonely caterpillar, whose eating habits have ballooned him to an impossible size, struggles to turn into a butterfly. Whilst his fellow classmates undergo metamorphosis and sprout their perfect wings, for our insect a cocoon that fits cannot be found. Red Biscuit Theatre bring you an adult (and incredibly silly) twist on the beloved children's story. 'Fast-paced, very silly and packed with exceptional examples of physical theatre' (TheatreWeekly.com). 'Pythonesque physical comedy' (TheSpyInTheStalls.com). 'With excess energy, a genius yet childlike creativity, and a surprising amount of heart' (VoiceMag.uk).

I found this show almost by chance, so glad that I did, it’s the best thing I’ve seen at the Fringe this year. Manic energy, very slick, utterly entertaining. There was a story but I was laughing too much to pay it any attention. Highly recommended.

This is one of those little gems which make the Fringe so great. It takes a well-known story and turns it on its head in a riot of craziness and energy. The five lads give you a concentrated dose of high-octane silliness which is perfect for starting your afternoon. You come away feeling that they could well turn into something big in the years to come and you’ll be able to look back and say you saw them when they first started. Go and see them.
