The Great & Glorious Granny’s Game!

It’s all about travel, adventure and one really surprising grandma!

Exploring while stuck at Gran’s, two children discover a most mysterious game – they’ll get more than they bargained for when they start to roll the dice!

Join Julia and John as they play Granny’s Game, where a trip around the board becomes a globetrotting adventure! Wrestling the snakes and climbing the ladders, our brave players will risk it all in a high-stakes quest they’ll never forget.

Rhubarb Theatre present a new theatre treat for intrepid adventurers of all ages, based on the inspiring real-life heroism of journalist and explorer Nellie Bly.

Make a journey round Spain and through France,
Perhaps see a snake-charmer dance?
There’ll be dragons in Hong Kong
Don’t put a foot wrong!
Be bold, roll the dice, take a chance!
