One night tiny Tom overhears Mum and Dad talking – there’s nothing left to eat so they are going to leave him and his six brothers in the forest!

Outwitting his parents and the ogre Tom shows everybody that even though he is small he is still mighty as he protects his brothers, finds the treasure and makes sure they’ll never be hungry again.

Performed entirely on and under a kitchen table this classic story is brought to life by Lyngo Theatre in a playful and fascinating show featuring feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest.

Come and join tiny Tom on his very big adventure!

Adapted by Patrick Lynch / Original music by Carlo Cialdo Capelli / Assistant director Gianni Bissaca / Design assistant Elena Marini.
