Burrowers - or; the Secret Society of Notable Nuisances
By Knot Theatre
In the heart of Old Maple park
Under the Oldest Maplest tree
Far below the whirlybirds
Down and down the burrow
Among the jam jars
Three sets of sticky pawprints trail
And weave among the bookspires
In the wake of childhood’s gloaming
Now we must wait for Dot.
Join us for the premiere season of 'Burrowers - or; the Secret Society of Notable Nuisances' by Felix Crossley-Pritchard and Georgia Kellett.
Inspired by author Charlie Mackesy's book 'The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse' the two introduce you to a whimsical ride through the twists and tunnels of a homely woodland burrow. This story embraces the nostalgic nature of book-like storytelling to share a journey of growing up, changing relationships, and celebrating the individuality of those you treasure. Find yourself laughing along with charming characters of Cat, Badger, Rabbit, and more as they are puppetted by skilled performers.

Knot Theatre is a Wellington-based Theatre company established in 2016. Sparking from the ideas of Anna Secker and Georgia Kellett during their final years at college Knot Theatre looks to find new theatre experiences that are not like the traditional trips to the theatre, both utilising modern theatre techniques and experimenting with other mediums of artistic expression. Knot Theatre uses inspiration from music, set, and light to create and produce original works. Recent works of Knot Theatre include, ‘Bruises’, ‘The Burdened’ and ‘Glass Town’. Knot Theatre hopes to continue to grow and develop new works in the near and distant future.
