This year our play for children has a very simple environmental message. We must look after, and protect the world we live in.
Journey back in time with ‘Tumshie’ the jester and join the magical creatures who inhabit the beautiful land of Alban.
But, there are also evil, and very stupid creatures living there who hate all things in nature, who don’t care if the water is contaminated or the trees are dying, and want to destroy it forever!
As the audience walk around the venue – the stunning Dr. Neil’s Garden, they sing songs, and find clues on their quest to save the planet from destruction.
Original music and songs, and audience participation.

Quotes from previous reviews
Primary Times – The cast is skilled at telling the story, in particular the storyteller/ narrator is excellent, entertaining the audience while we waited for the show to begin, and encouraging everyone to join in with the travelling song as we made our way around the Gardens. The show is recommended for ages 4-10 and I would say this is accurate, my daughter is 9 and really enjoyed it, and the younger audience members were equally engaged.
Child’s Review The venue is not as central as many Fringe venues but well worth the trip: the Gardens are beautiful and really add to the whole experience. If you have time before or after there is a lovely cafe on site, and there is plenty of free parking in the car park. Recommended if you have children in this age range!
