La Boite gets sticky with shake & stir theatre co to create Out Damn Snot, a new show especially for families.
Daddy's Girl Mackenzie is settling in for an afternoon of dress-ups with her best friend and sister-from-another-mister, Kim. The only problem is that Mackenzie's annoying little brother Heath is hanging around like a bad smell, and so is his forever-running nose. When Heath's sniffing and snotting becomes too much, the girls decide to take action and devise a spell to turn him into... a girl!
Mackenzie and Kim soon learn that messing with magic can have disastrous consequences when they find themselves transported into Heath's gooey nasal cavities. As they dig around for clues and a way out, they meet a collection of crazy characters and have to leap pits of snot, dodge tickly nose hairs and avoid the gigantic finger that keeps coming in for a pick!
Loosely inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream and tightly squeezed into a hilarious show for kids of all ages, this disgustingly delightful tale is set in a large pool of green slime and will have audiences squelching, squirming and squealing with joy.
