REALLY BIG AND REALLY LOUD

by Phoebe Eclair-Powell

This is a story. Charli’s story.

It’s about losing your voice and going on a big adventure to find it again. It features a rageful rhino, a very helpful fly called Stephen and some really good songs about chips.

A show for all the family from award-winning playwright Phoebe Eclair-Powell.

 

Reviews of previous Paines Plough shows:

DEXTER AND WINTER’S DETECTIVE AGENCY

★★★★ The Stage

The first thing Olivia said upon leaving the theatre is “Can I come here every week?” So, the next show has already been booked. If you have a young child that has never been to the theatre before, this is the perfect debut! ★★★★★ On-The-Scene Media

 

HOW TO SPOT AN ALIEN

“An absolute romp… the children in the audience spent a lot of time on the edges of their seats.” ★★★★ Broadway Baby

★★★★ Edinburgh Festival For Kids

 

OUR TEACHER’S A TROLL

“Fun, funny and unpatronising… comic perfection.” ★★★★ The Times
“All the wit, grotesque humour and naughtiness of Dahl’s best.”
★★★★ What’s On Stage

 

I GOT SUPERPOWERS FOR MY BIRTHDAY

“If only all children’s theatre could be performed in the Paines Plough Roundabout… endlessly dynamic and frequently funny.” ★★★★ The List

“Exploding with energy… exemplary family entertainment.” ★★★★ The Stage

“This is fast-moving, energetic and exciting storytelling at it’s very, very finest.”
★★★★★ Edinburgh Festival for Kids

 

HOW TO BE A KID

“A fast-paced comedic romp… lives that are turned around through communication, hope and love.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

This is perfect start to a day… this heart-warming story is sensitive, uplifting and great fun. This is storytelling at its finest.” ★★★★ British Theatre Guide
