Overview

Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights flee in terror... Can a humble nun defeat the beast? Multi-Award-Winning Mumblecrust Theatre present two muddle-headed storytellers, an obscure British legend, breathtaking puppetry and spine-tingling live music in this dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old. Winners: “Best Newcomer to Brighton Fringe” and “Best of Brighton Fringe: Children and Families Award” 2017.

Mumblecrust Theatre

Mumblecrust Theatre is an award-winning theatre company based in the South West of England. Co-Artistic Directors Katie Underhay and Anthony Burbridge came together to fill a niche in children’s theatre, where slightly older children often get left out. From this collaboration, The Tale of the Cockatrice was born.

The pair have collaborated on a number of other projects, including: satirical music video Tawdry Child, Pinecone Penguin’s King Kong the Musical, puppeteering the Mermaid in Luc Mollinger’s creature feature short The Mermaid of Mevagissey and co-directing (and creating puppets for) new musical Heartwood.
