FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

A workman goes into a café and is served too much pepper. He complains of a tickle in his nose and sneezes too violently. The ‘tickle’ is ejected – and arrives, pathetic as a new-born baby, on the stage.

He is only anxious to find a friend and a home, but apparently nobody likes a Tickle. He becomes involved with three wicked Germs, causes chaos in a Fair and elsewhere, but finally finds his friend and a safe home – with a laughing hyena.


REVIEWS

“Wood, like Lewis Carroll, understands the childish imagination, its mixture of fantasy and visceral logical curiosity. Tickle herself is the incarnation of an itch, a wayward feathery sprite, looking, like a child, for recognition and a place in the world. On the way, she disrupts a bus queue, gets stuck in a tumble dryer, goes to the circus and falls in and out with some low-life germs and so learns to make good decisions. This is wholly delightful show, visually gorgeous, perfectly paced for five-to-eight-year-olds, punctuated with haunting songs and audience participation.” - The Scotsman

“Audience participation is very much invited, and yesterday’s young patrons enjoyed themselves vastly. Tickled pink is perhaps the right phrase.” - Eastern Evening News


Tickle was first produced in 1972 by the Dance Drama Theatre.
