Monkey Baa Theatre Company, the award-winning theatre company for young people, is proud to present Diary of a Wombat, a new Australian play based on the multi-award winning picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.
Millions of young people around the world have adored the book, and now finally this iconic work has been adapted for the stage by Monkey Baa’s Creative Directorate Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry. This landmark Australian production will feature stunning puppetry, a live cello score and a brilliant set design in Monkey Baa’s signature style.
Audiences aged three and over will meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her. Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial. Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating, Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence humans are quite easily trained!
