Little Angel Theatre present 'Scoop's Space: Mr Gobble's Garden', a new story written by Jon Barton. Donate to Little Angel Theatre: http://bit.ly/2Wilwox
Scoop the Junk lady and Bertie the Bottle welcome you back into their special space, where they make things out of the stuff other people throw away, and use them to tell stories. This time, they’ll tell you the story of Mr Gobble’s Garden.
He looks like a slipper with a mop for some hair.
For when he’s not gardening, he rests in his chair.
But, more than anything in the world, and of this I am certain
Mr Gobble is extremely proud of his garden.
Mr Gobble is the grumpiest man you’ll ever meet in your life, but his pride and joy is his garden. He tends to his herbs, fruit and sunflowers, and is growing an enormous Orchid to enter into a competition. But one day, a mischievous mole comes digging, and Mr Gobble has to learn an important lesson about kindness, sharing and friendship.
This production was filmed in a socially distanced way at Little Angel Studios.
