Being alone does not mean you are lonely…”

Fergal is a fun-loving non-verbal show for children & families.

This simple story, imaginatively told, follows Fergal to the beach one day where he thinks he is alone at last. He has the time of his life painting and playing his banjo, thinking he has the whole beach to himself; but things change for Fergal when others arrive…

Fergal is a beautiful, non-verbal show, featuring one actor & live shadow puppetry, that celebrates independence, being ourselves and the importance of enjoying your own company. 

“Like Mr Bean with a whole lot of heart”
