Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights flee in terror… Can a humble nun defeat the beast?

A dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old, featuring two muddle-headed storytellers, an obscure British legend, breath-taking puppetry and spine-tingling live music.

Great for everyone 4+, this show is perfect for 7-12 year olds, and will entertain parents and grandparents as well.

Mumblecrust Theatre are winners of Best Newcomer to Brighton Fringe and Best of Brighton Fringe: Children and Families Award 2017.
