14 October • Murray Lachlan Young: Modern Cautionary Tales for Children

 

 

From the moment Murray Lachlan Young bounds onto the stage, hair wrapped in a towel, dressing gown flapping, you know you’re in for a good time. Best of all, he knows exactly what your average 5–10-year-old is interested in – toilets, poo and death being three key subjects discussed during the show. A mixture of poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling, a touch of panto, and lots of fun participation. A hilarious and positive route to show children that poetry can be fun, thought-provoking and even quite cool!

 

 

‘One of the greatest children’s entertainers I have ever seen.’ ★★★★★ The Scotsman
