The grass remembers. It remembers you. It remembers me. And it remembers the animals that called the meadow home.
Time changes everything. In a post-human future, only the grass remembers the way things used to be. Meet the animals and insects that lived in the meadow, and see their stories come to life. Old Saw return with a new puppetry show for children and their families. Told with inventive handcrafted puppets made from organic materials found in the meadow and original music by the outstanding singer/songwriter Paul Mosley. Created and directed by Greta Clough. Set design by Alex Wheeler. Puppets by Greta Clough.

What the critics think
"Meadow is the antithesis of the sort of children’s theatre that rushes towards its audience, singing, juggling, crying out for audience participation. Like a wild animal, it requires your gentle attention, unfolding its treasures shyly and quietly. ..." (Total Theatre)
"powerfully poignant ... the sense of an elegy for a lost or disappearing world" (Total Theatre)
"A wonderful dreamlike performance..." (Curious Mum)
"...as fine a piece of theatre as any 3-6 year old might be fortunate enough to see." (Reviews Gate)
