A surreal and tragi-comic love story by poet and comedian John Hegley, packed with original songs and poems. John stars with Graham Fellowes, sometimes better known as his alter-ego John Shuttleworth. A musical and lyrical treat, inspired by an Anthony Thwaite poem.

Directed by Anne Edyvean

Lyrics by John Hegley

Original music by John Hegley, Tony Curtis and Nigel Piper

Rameau piano playing by Clare Elstow

Special thanks to the football-playing children and members of the audience at the Lowry Centre who provided background action.

And - in case you were wondering - the Latin for badger is Melis Melis.
