Young Herbert's Horrors
a Justin Coe production
Young Herbert is a little horror. Living on a boat should be the ideal life for a wannabe pirate, but the boat’s grounded until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin, eat his greens and be more polite. A big storm brews up when Herbert is sent home from school and Mum calls on Great Uncle Albatross – navy captain and scourge of all pirates – to warn him of the dangers of rebellion.
But is Great Uncle Albatross all he seems to be and do his cautionary tales really have the power to make Young Herbert behave? Or will they just give Young Herbert the horrors?
Featuring swashbuckling verse, jaunty music, gallows humour and the obligatory parrot, Young Herbert’s Horrors is Justin Coe’s brand new spoken word show for children, following the highly popular Big Wow, Small Wonder.
Each performance comes with a pre-show workshop and an opportunity to meet the company afterwards:
1pm: Pre-performance workshop
2:45pm: Pre or post- performance workshop
Please note that this event takes place at the Crossrail Place Roof Garden performance space in Canary Wharf.
