Kneehigh present FUP
Do you fancy going quackers for the return of Cornwall’s favourite oversized duck and the most functional, dysfunctional family in all of the wild southwest? Then Fup is for you - Kneehigh’s glorious adaption of the splendid Jim Dodge novel is back!
One hundred year old Grandaddy Jake and his enormous grandson Tiny live life on the fringes, drinking whiskey, building fences, boasting of immortality. But then, Fup arrives – an ass-kicking, web-footed, feathery sonofagun. See, Fup is a duck. A very big duck. A very big duck indeed... And she is going to change their world forever.
Fup is a big-hearted, uproarious modern fable about family, love and nature set in a weird and wild Cornwall not so different from this one. Featuring live, foot-stomping music, quacking puppetry and Kneehigh’s infamous eccentricity and charm, Fup is a story like no other.
Suitable for adults, teenagers and adventurous children over the age of 10.
The performance on Tuesday 11 September will be BSL interpreted by Debbie Harvey.
Running time: 120 minutes, including a 20 minute interval.
