Rock Pool

FREE Audio story

23 Oct - 01 Dec

This event has past.

A big storm leaves 2 very different creatures stranded in a lonely, little rock pool. Prawn and Crab must learn to get on swimmingly if they’re to survive hunger, boredom, deadly seagull attacks, and each other. All this whilst unexpectedly forming the world’s most banging underwater rock band!

Dealing with themes of isolation, boredom, upheaval and the climate crisis, Rock Pool could not be more relevant to children’s experiences in these strange times. A sort of crustacean Waiting for Godot, for kids.

Rock Pool is a funny and superbly acted audio drama (with songs) for 4-7 year olds and their families/carers.

Rock Pool is presented by Inspector Sands in association with Trigger. Based on the original show by Inspector Sands. Created by Lucinka Eisler, Giulia Innocenti and Ben Lewis.
