About Pigs Might Fly

from Michael Morpurgo’s Mudpuddle Farm

By Michael Morpurgo

Musical adaptation by Caroline Wigmore & Jen Green

Golden Toad Theatre presents a new farmyard musical about the joy of unlikely friendships.

This bold and energetic new musical follows the air-raising adventures of Pintsize, the youngest and most daring piglet on Mudpuddle Farm. 

Pintsize loves nothing more than playing with his next-farm neighbour and best friend Diana the sheep, but one day he wakes up to discover a tall fence built between their two farms. Devastated by the loss of playtime with his best pal and the fact that pigs can’t jump over fences, Pintsize resolves that he will figure out how to fly over it instead. 

Can his determination and ingenuity defy the laws of physics? Will crotchety Farmer Rafferty finally make peace with his neighbour, Farmer Brightwell? Can Albertine, the clever goose, keep Pintsize from hurting himself as he tries to fly?

Based on the book by Michael MorpurgoPigs Might Fly features catchy songs, puppetry and slapstick humour to bring the farmyard to life!
