The Boy Who Bit Picasso at libraries

There’s another treat in store for children and families with the latest production from the Children’s Pop-Up Theatre in Nottinghamshire libraries.

Untied Artists present The Boy Who Bit Picasso, an interactive theatre show for children aged 4 – 8 and their families. This children’s production, originally co-produced with Oxford Playhouse, is inspired by Anthony Penrose’s well-loved book The Boy Who Bit Picasso. It follows a boy called Tony who becomes friends with Pablo Picasso, telling the true story of how Tony spent his childhood with one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

With storytelling, music and chances to make your own art, this hands-on and hilarious family show introduces one of the 20th century’s most influential artists through the eyes of a young boy, as families are invited to come and play down on the farm with Tony and Picasso.

The Boy Who Bit Picasso is brought to Nottinghamshire Libraries by The Spark Arts for Children in association with Nottinghamshire County Council, and Inspire, the new cultural organisation which will be delivering some of the county council’s cultural services from April.
