Showing at Kneehigh’s Asylum at the Lost Gardens of Heligan
Fri 07 September 2018 – Sat 22 September 2018
The Santee family are unconventional, to say the least.
One hundred year old Grandaddy Jake and his enormous grandson Tiny live life on the fringes, drinking whiskey, building fences, boasting of immortality. But then, Fup arrives – an ass-kicking, web-footed, feathery sonofagun. See, Fup is a duck. A very big duck. A very big duck indeed… And she is going to change their world forever.
FUP is a big-hearted, uproarious modern fable about family, love and nature set in a weird and wild Cornwall not so different from this one. Featuring live, foot-stomping music, quacking puppetry and Kneehigh’s infamous eccentricity and charm, FUP is a story like no other.
Suitable for adults, teenagers and adventurous children over the age of 10.
The performance on Tuesday 11 September will be BSL interpreted by Debbie Harvey.
Running time: 120 minutes, including a 20 minute interval.
