  • Eaten is a show for families about food, eating and being eaten.
  • What if your food started talking back? Meet Lionel the lion. He’s just eaten a human called Mamoru for lunch, but hasn’t chewed his food. So Mamoru’s alive and well in his stomach, and now wants to say hello! A strange friendship between the eater and the eaten starts to grow. Meanwhile, Lionel’s breakfast wants to say hello… from his bottom! Eaten invites children and grown-ups to the fascinating world of food chains, asking ‘What should we eat?’ and ‘Who should eat us?!’

  • "Dragons come when you least expect it. You turn round...and they're there."

With original live music, this highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face. And remember... ìNo dragon is more powerful than YOU!
