Once there was a boy and one day he found a penguin at his door.
He didn’t know where it had come from or who it belonged to. The penguin looked sad and the boy thought it must be lost. So he decided to help it find its way home, even if that meant rowing all the way to the South Pole.
This funny, charming tale of friendship is the perfect treat for a younger audience. Brought to life with puppetry, songs and music, this fantastic new show is suitable for ages 3+ and their grown-ups.

John Robins: The Darkness of Robins
Double Chortle Award winning comedian John Robins – one of the most exciting and distinctive voices in comedy – returns reflecting on love, loss and lamenting the fact he can’t breakup with himself.
The stand-up, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ ™ would love to promise The Darkness of Robins won’t be an hour-long yell of a show, but he can’t. He’ll shout, snarl and sneer in his attempts to grapple with life’s fall-outs in what promises to be a pivotal moment in his being. Powerful, angst-ridden comedy at its finest, this is a must-see from one of the UK’s brightest talents.
John has firmly established himself on the comedy circuit since his debut in 2005, and with fellow comedian Elis James has enjoyed a meteoric success with The Elis James and John Robins show on Radio X, which, like RickyGervais, Stephen Merchant and Adam & Joe before them, has spawned one ofthe UK’s most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed UK tour, selling out Shepherd’s Bush Empire within minutes.
He will headline the upcomingseries of Live from the BBC (BBC2)and is a regular face on TV, with recent appearances including Mock The Week (BBC2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3). Healso has a host of radio credits under his belt including BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.
