A six part audio drama for 4-7 year old
23 Oct - 1 Dec
Available from 23rd Oct Ages
From Polka and Inspector Sands comes our very first radio play. Get ready to get your boat rocked in song with this aquatic funtastic six-parter coming to you 23rd October.
A big storm leaves two very different creatures stranded in a lonely, little rock pool. Prawn and Crab must learn to get on swimmingly if they’re to survive hunger, boredom, deadly seagull attacks, and each other. All this whilst unexpectedly forming the world’s most banging underwater rockband!
Dealing with themes of isolation, boredom, upheaval and the climate crisis, Rock Pool could not be more relevant to children’s experiences in these strange times. A sort of crustacean Waiting for Godot for children.
Rock Pool is a funny and superbly acted audio drama (with songs) for 4-7 year olds and their families/carers.
Rock Pool is presented by Inspector Sands in association with Trigger Based on the original show by Inspector Sands
