Curious Investigators

A cracking new adventure for 3-7 year olds


Scribble and Clipboard have a job to do: sort the recycling. But Scribble keeps finding new things to investigate. When she discovers a mysterious egg hidden in the rubbish, the pair need the audience’s help to rescue an unborn chick. Can we save the precious egg from a smashing? And what will we discover along the way?


“Wonderfully engaging! Had the adults laughing like children!”

“Ridiculously superb!”
