MEAL ONE

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 excited to be working in partnership with Mind the Gap Theatre Company to develop an immersive and imaginative interpretation of the 1970s picture book by Ivor Cutler and Helen Oxenbury for family audiences in 2020/21. The production will use digital projection, imaginative design and choreography in an immersive musical soundscape. An initial R&D of the work took place at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford in August 2019.
