About the Show

China Plate and Inspector Sands Present

Rock Pool

When a big storm whips up the sea, two creatures are left stranded in a lonely rock pool...

Prawn and Crab could not be more different. They look different, act different, and when Crab gets hungry - about every 5 minutes - it’s all Prawn can do to stop being eaten. But as the sun beats down and their little pool starts to drain away, they don’t have long to find a way of getting on and getting home.

Funny, tender, exuberant, partially-submerged theatre from award-winning company Inspector Sands.

Featuring rock music and splashy dancing!

For children ages 3 and up (and their adults)

Commissioned by Farnham Maltings and Arts Partnership Surrey in association with Take Art and supported by artsdepot, South Street Reading and Discover Children’s Centre.
