A spectacular collaboration between hugely popular visual artist David Shrigley, award-winning composer David Fennessy and Magnetic North's Artistic Director Nicholas Bone,  Pass the Spoon was a huge hit with critics and audiences during sell-out runs at Tramway, Traverse and Southbank Centre.

It’s a show with actors, music and food.

It’s a bit like an opera, but with vegetables and fruit.

It’s about cooking.

It’s possibly the only show you’ll see that features a dung beetle.

Oh and someone gets eaten. Did we mention that?
