Gogmagog: A lost legend retold

Saturday, October 1

Share:

23rd September- 1st October
(Only 5 shows- catch them whilst you can!)
Recommended 5yrs+ and their big people.

This epic show is based on the Plymouth legend of Gogmagog, the giant whose figure was once carved into the limestone on Plymouth’s Hoe in Elizabethan times.

Our performers tell the wonderful and tragic story of Gogmagog through two foolish gardeners Clod and Turf, whose night vigil of protecting the figure from moles, leads them on a fantastical and amusing retelling of the story involving giants, Trojans, puppets, dressing up and humorous songs.

Performed at Soapbox Children’s Theatre in Devonport Park.
