DESCRIPTION

Meet Trouble.
Trouble is a toddler. It’s not his real name. But it’s what everyone calls him. You can guess why.
Meet Mum.
It’s not her real name. But it’s what Trouble calls her. You can guess why.

In this fast paced comedy adventure, a mother and her toddler provoke, cajole and push each other into an imaginative place beyond the safety of home.

Audiences are thrown into the polished nylon 1950s where the tug of apron strings belies the inner turmoil of a quintessential scallywag preparing to explore the world on his own.

The stage explodes with the comic and vocal skills of award winning cabaret artists Cienda McNamara (Brisbane) and Matthew Barker (Adelaide), with original live music to send Adele and Glasvegas home weeping.

Every parent will chuckle knowingly and every child will be sent on a rip-roaring escapade through recognition, fear and delight.

And guess what? You might just discover that the big bad world isn’t so bad after all – at least not when you’ve got someone to hold your hand.
