Polar Bear & Penguin

Paul Curley


Sun 15 Oct - Wed 18 Oct

Polar Bear & Penguin is a quirky tale of our time, infused with humour, friendship and fish.

What happens when polar opposite characters meet for the first time? This tender and heartfelt show follows a polar bear and a penguin as they get to know one another and learn how to survive in a world that is melting beneath their feet...paws...flippers.
