Poor Zoe; her hamster has died and her lazy stepmother, Sheila, doesn’t care. In fact, she wants Zoe to pick her nose for her, which gives a flavour of her character and that of Heartbreak Productions’ brand new open-air show for 2016. After the phenomenal success of their adaptation of Mr Stink, (“Magnificent!” – David Walliams) Heartbreak Productions are back with the theatrical premiere of his book, Ratburger, adapted for the outdoor stage.
Voted the top children’s book of the year in 2012, David Walliams encourages us to support Zoe as she battles through a life littered with pitfalls and grizzly individuals. Dad’s been made redundant and her nasty neighbour, Tina Trotts, keeps flobbing on her head. Never giving up on her dream of travelling the world, and inspired by her love of animals, Zoe is determined to escape her home in a leaning tower block.
But first she has to outwit the menacing Burt (of Burt’s Burgers) who is after Zoe and her pet rat!
Join Heartbreak Productions as they perform a modern thriller that promises to deliver a blend of dark reality and empowering comedy for the modern child.
