Edmund The Learned Pig – a new show for anyone aged eight and over – receives its world premiere in The Studio at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre from next Wednesday to Saturday, October 26.

Billed as ‘a wondrous and darkly pleasant tale about a pig who taught himself to read’ the show is presented as a co-production between the Royal Exchange, Fittings Multimedia Arts and Krazy Kat Theatre Company.

The show, which is sure to engage its young audience, manages to fuse British Sign Language with imaginative puppetry, magic and music. Box office: 0161 833 9833 or www.royalexchange.co.uk
