Based on the picture book The Terrible Plop
by Ursula Dubosarsky, illustrated by Andrew Joyner
When two tiny rabbits get frightened by an apple falling from above, the anticipation of it happening again and again leads to an interactive and action-packed adventure.
Can our little fluffy heroes overcome their fear, and will they outwit the big, scary block-rocking bear?
Specially crafted to provide preschool audiences with intimate and non-threatening first theatrical experiences, this is a show full of invention and theatrical magic as the performers duck, dive and do their level best to stop the terrible plop!
Plop! follows seasons of Cat and Boom Bah as the third installment in our 'Picture Book to Performance' partnership with The Advertiser's Little Big Book Club.
Commissioned with support from Come Out and presented as part of Come Out 2009. The Terrible Plop published by Penguin 2009.
