“Faceplant Theatre won the award for best VAULT family show last year. This new piece features music, clowning and puppetry and telling the story of Billy who is trying to navigate love and 7000 rubber ducks.”


7000 Rubber Ducks. 7 Seas. 1 Big Adventure.

Our unlikely but lovable hero Billy is prepared to venture to the ends of the earth to win the affections of his sweetheart. Little did he know he’d be set the tremendous task of finding the elusive nautical treasure... Rubber Ducks?! Soon he is swept up on an ocean clear up adventure that would make David Attenborough proud, spanning from the quaint shores of Pebbleton Village to the icy north pole, from an exotic tropical beach to a floating island made entirely of rubbish.

One Duck Down is an award winning show inspired by a true tale (featured on Blue Planet II) that saw 7000 Rubber Ducks cast adrift in a mighty storm. Jam packed with music, clowning and puppetry; it teaches all ages the importance of looking after our ocean. One Duck Down’s set and props are recycled from the lost and found of rubbish both on land and at sea, all to create one eco-friendly family frolic.

Winner of Best Family Show of the Year at Vault Festival 2018
