About Janet
Emmerdale meets Monty Python in this deliciously surreal show, following the life of Janet from conception to tragic-comic end. Janet, 1.5kg of uncooked bread dough, refuses to give in to destiny and be cooked. Other characters are played by various kitchen paraphernalia and differently-shaped loaves. 

A fun and unusual night out for all who love to cook! 

★★★★★ Broadway Baby 

The show contains references to sex, violence and suicide all performed with kitchen utensils and bread (cooked and uncooked). No objects have any clothes on at any time. The puppeteer keeps all her clothes on all the time. The show uses flour, coeliacs are kindly requested not to sit on the front two rows.
