Based on the heart-warming and funny book ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. Starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug.

Facing many rejections along the way, they meet a rather scary badger, an obsessive squirrel who knows A LOT about nuts, a fabulous fox and an owl who is trying hard to be wise. A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance.

Set to Tom Gray’s beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love…and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.

‘This is a beauty of an adaptation. An absolute joy. There are wonderful songs and humour for children and adults.’ Kidsbooktolife

‘The production as a whole has a whimsical feel, which is magical for the children yet nostalgic for the adults. With just the right amount of humour and silliness, it was a heart warming story that was enjoyable for all.’

‘We loved seeing our grand-daughter laugh hysterically at the rabbit. She hasn’t stopped digging since!’ Grandma Julie

Part of Back to Live – A celebration of live performance for children and families across four independent Sussex venues: Komedia, Ropetackle, Brighton Open Air Theatre and The Old Market
