Young Herbert's Horrors

Shiver me timbers! It be mighty chilly out these days! Mark yer calendars for the 20th of January, it be a fine time to bundle up your wee scally wags and take ’em to ye’ old Halfmoon Theatre! If ye be lucky and quick you might just get in for free!

Young Herbert’s Horrors

Young Herbert is a little horror. Living on a boat should be the ideal life for a wannabe pirate, but the boat’s grounded until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin, eat his greens and be more polite. A big storm brews up when Herbert is sent home from school and Mum calls on Great Uncle Albatross – navy captain and scourge of all pirates – to warn him of the dangers of rebellion.

But who is Great Uncle Albatross and do his cautionary tales really have the power to make Young Herbert behave? Or will they just give Young Herbert the horrors?

Featuring swashbuckling verse, jaunty music, gallows humour and the obligatory parrot, Young Herbert’s Horrors is Justin Coe’s brand new spoken word show for children, following the highly popular Big Wow, Small Wonder.
