MESSY

Meet Daisy. She's got a messy brain and a messy bedroom. No matter what she does, "The Mess" just seems to follow her about! Which makes it very difficult to look for stuff. Important stuff. Like Mr Twiggy!  When Daisy is chosen to look after Mr Twiggy the class hamster, Daisy (and the rest of her class) worry she might lose him. So she’s very glad when best friend Beth decides to stay over to lend a hand. In fact, Beth, Daisy and Mr Twiggy are going to have the best weekend ever! But things don’t quite go to plan... Can Daisy use the adventures of "The Mess" to find Mr Twiggy and prove everyone wrong?

Zoo Co Messy Artwork 211218 copy.jpg

Zoo Co present this magical and visual story complete with original music, puppets, tap dancing and even a trip to the moon! All the while celebrating the stories that explode from "The Mess". Performed by a deaf and hearing cast with Sign Supported English, Messy has been created in partnership with ADHD Foundation and all performances are Relaxed Performances, which means if you need to stand up, sit down, wriggle around, leave or come back in, that’s absolutely fine!  There aren't any loud noises and the lights will stay on in the theatre so it won’t be too dark.

✮ THE MESSY FILM ✮ 

With Covid-19 disrupting a UK Tour of Messy on more than one occasion, we decided to take matters into our own hands and get our beloved show professionally filmed so we could still offer it audiences, albeit digitally!  Premiered at the Curve, Slough on 17th-21st February 2021, tickets were sold online and audiences were sent the link to the film to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.  We also created a live 45 minute zoom workshop to accompany the show filled with interaction and creativity. 

 

If you're a theatre, a school, a community organisation or just a general theatre lover, interested in accessing the Messy film, drop us a line at laura@wearezooco.co.uk . Commissioned by the Curve, Slough and Pound Arts.
