AniMalcom at The Albany Theatre

Sometimes the hardest thing to become is... yourself.

Malcolm doesn't like animals. But his family love them - the house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday.

The only bright spot on the horizon is the school trip, which Malcolm never thought his parents would pay for. And yet here he is, on the bus, heading to... oh no! A farm!

This vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre combines physical theatre, puppetry and the company's outstanding storytelling style to bring David Baddiel's magical and wonderfully comic story to the stage.

Date: 23 April
