New Perspectives Theatre Company brings John Vernon Lord and Janet Burroway’s classic picture book The Giant Jam Sandwich to stage in a brand new touring production at Derby Live’s Guildhall Theatre.
One hot summer's day, four million wasps invade the quiet village of Itching Down. The picnickers panic and the farmer stops haymaking. The wasps are noisy, nasty and worst of all, they don't mind who they sting! That is until the baker has an ingenious idea...
Following successful tours of Farm Boy and The Butterfly Lion (Michael Morpurgo), Not Now, Bernard (David McKee) and The Tiger's Bones and Other Stories (Ted Hughes), we bring one of the most loved picture books to life on stage to enthral a new generation.
Join the villagers in their giant sandwich-making plan to defeat the wasps and help save the day, in a fun-packed feast for 3-7 year olds and their families.
