Presented by the egg, Oxford Playhouse, Theatr Iolo and Conde Duque.

Paloma has always mucked about with Pichón. They run wild. They dress up like tigers, flamenco dancers, queens, kings, rabbits and Lady Gaga. Life is fun and funny and a little bit loopy. Until, all of a sudden, Paloma comes face to face with a blinding light named Big Luz, and Paloma and Pichón are catapulted into a strange new world.

Created with an international ensemble, Muckers is a funny, magical, physical production. With original songs and a smattering of Spanish, this mischievous show asks what it takes to stand proud and be true to ourselves, and how we empower the next generation to do the same.
