“Piggery Jokery” is a whimsical perambulation through the seasons, touching on the circular nature of time, as told by the Green Man and his hurdy-gurdy playing Droning Crone and their troupe of rag-bag characters. There is plenty of laughter along the way as the old farmer tends his land and fattens his pig for the winter.

It is both moving and entertaining with resonances of ancient pagan ritual and dark humour.

It is suitable for a wide range of events, and has been performed in the UK and abroad at Medieval Fayres, Ecology Festivals, Woodland events, and Storytelling session, as well as Craft Fayres, Farmers’ Markets, Folk Festivals, and around the tree at Christmas…

The show lasts about half an hour, and is ideal for a mixed audience of all ages, but not an exclusively children’s audience.

It is suitable for most environments and has an atmosphere of Dark Ages, New Ages which will captivate All Ages, particularly Middle Ages and Older Ages …. from little acorns to old oaks.

 

“A perfect show – It is extraordinarily consistent in tone and played with great wit and charm,” — Martin Reeve, at Skipton International Festival. September 2007
