Born from Meyyappan's original solo work 'Snails & Ketchup', 'Skewered Snails' is the story of a dysfunctional family and of a boy who flees to the tree tops to seek solace from the brutality of his father.
'Skewered Snails' introduces award winning Billy Mack as the impossible father, Adura Onashile as the ineffectual mother and Sita Pieraccini as the sibling rival to Ramesh Meyyappan, the boy compelled to live on trees for the rest of his life after promising 'never to come back down again' following relationship breakdowns with his family.
'Skewered Snails' is a highly physical performance boasting half a tonne of rope and four exceptional performers.
'Snails & Ketchup' toured successfully in 2011 with sell-out shows in Paris and Singapore before a run at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the Made in Scotland showcase. It was nominated for a Total Theatre Award as well as garnering a cluster of four- and five-star reviews.
Recommended for ages eight and over.
