Children and ex-children alike will delight in Young’s anarchic, hilarious world
Murray Lachlan Young knows exactly what your average five-to-10-year-old is interested in. And that includes toilets, poo and death.
A mixture of poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling and a touch of panto shows children that poetry can be fun, thought-provoking and occasionally quite cool! This raucous, silly, scary, funny poignant and enlightening hour of merriment and mayhem gets them dancing, completing simple fun poems, dying theatrically and getting seriously involved in live interactive poetry.
A literary event, a stand-up show, a cosy chat – Modern Cautionary Tales for Children is all these things and more.
