A squishy squelchy show for the very young.
Being a slug is hard.
Everyone thinks you’re disgusting.
When Slug tries to make friends with Caterpillar, Caterpillar has other ideas. Caterpillar thinks that slugs are gross. They’re covered in SLIME, they move weirdly and they have terrible taste in music. But when things get sticky, and Slug is the only one who can help, Caterpillar realises that having a slug for a friend might not be so bad after all…
Enter the undergrowth to SQUISH, SQUELCH and PLAY your way through this funny and surreal show for 2-5 year olds and their families.

A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
