Synopsis Mix up at the farm
On a Farm where different animals live together, one of Mrs Hen’s eggs disappears. As a result, a big Mix Up develops and suspicions are raised among the Farm’s inhabitants. All suspicion is directed towards the Crow, a newcomer from “abroad”.
Pinyot and Carabassot are two men from the audience who become spectators with a difference. They learn that the inhabitants of the farm are not so different from themselves.
It is a satire in the form of a fable describing current conflicts in our society explained in an uncomplicated, thoughtful and very humorous way.
This piece has been assessed by professionals from within the education sector (teachers and educators). The piece takes nursery and primary school curricula into account, and endeavours to tackle issues such as tolerance, immigration, and racism explicitly using well known characters such as farm animals, which do not come across as strange for children. The environment of the Farm is also closer to our shared knowledge even though it is becoming more and more unfamiliar for our children.
