Living on an allotment in a tiny house the size of a shed, Mr and Mrs Chickweed show off their prizewinning vegetables for the last time before they retire. However they can't resist planting one last seed and as the Enormous Turnip grows it threatens their house with disaster! Can anyone help them pull up the Enormous Turnip?

Following sell-out performances last year, Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company come to York Theatre Royal with their unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in a re-potted version of the world-famous children’s story.
