A playful new show for families adapted from the picture book
by Ivor Cutler and Helen Oxenbury

Meal One tells of the relationship between a mother and her young son and the extraordinary things that happen when boy wakes up one morning to find – of all things – a plum in his mouth! From then on things can only become more strange and more comical – and they certainly do.

509 Arts is developing an imaginative interpretation of the 1970s picture book by Ivor Cutler and Helen Oxenbury that will be presented as an immersive music theatre installation in 2020/21. Directed by Alan Dix, the production uses digital projection, imaginative design and choreography in an immersive musical soundscape. To start the process we are undertaking 5 days of research and development at the Theatre in the Mill, Bradford in August.
