An adult (and incredibly silly) twist on the beloved children’s story, fresh from a four star (Voice Mag) sold-out run at Brighton Fringe, Red Biscuit Theatre’s The Very Well-Fed Caterpillar is taking over the Etcetera for one night only.
A young and lonely caterpillar, whose eating habits have ballooned him to an impossible size, struggles to turn into a butterfly. Whilst all his fellow classmates undergo metamorphosis and sprout their perfect wings, for our insect a cocoon that fits cannot be found. Without the chance to evolve, he continued to grow, overthrew a kingdom and now rules Cape Caterpillar as a vicious tyrant. Will the villagers ever escape his wrath? Will the caterpillar ever turn into a butterfly? Will Steve be confused with Simon? Find out in this high octane devised tale.
Bursting with relentless energy, multi-roling and a handful of homemade props five performers take to the stage to become clocks, chairs, doors, portals and all manner of zany characters for your entertainment.
Red Biscuit Theatre may just be starting out in their careers, but they are sure to emerge as a theatre company with a bright future
