Quirk Theatre and Exeter Phoenix present
Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem
‘Tis definitely a bit brillig in Beamish-on-the-Marsh. Slithy toves have appeared on the school playing field, SOMETHING is whiffling and burbling in Tulgey Wood, and Cook is very worried that this might delay lunch.
This Christmas, Quirk Theatre and Exeter Phoenix invite you to take your vorpal sword in hand and join us as we face the Jabberwocky!
Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem and retold with Quirk’s finely honed sense of the ridiculous, our latest adventure is a ripping yarn for all primary school kids that will leave you grinning like a cheshire cat.
‘Totally grips young imaginations.’
