The Worm – An Underground Adventure was shortlisted and then made a Finalist for the Fringe Sustainable Practice Award on Friday 22nd August. The award celebrates the greenest and most sustainable shows at the festival.
Emily Reid, Creative Director at Eco Drama said, “We are honoured to be included in such an illustrious list of theatre makers and performers who are changing and challenging the way we make theatre today, and to further be made a Finalist is very encouraging.”
The Worm – An Underground Adventure has also been included in the Ashden Directory’s pick of shows to see at the Fringe this year.
The Worm – An Underground Adventure was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at Summerhall, Venue 26. The Fringe performances were part of a wider Summer Festival tour, which included performances at the West End Festival, Green 2014 at the Lighthouse, Catch Festival in South Lanarkshire and East Renfrewshire’s Early Years Festival.
The Worm is an enchanting, ecological adventure for 3-7 year olds. It uses humour, music and interaction to send an upbeat and valuable message about sustainability. Laugh out loud songs, including one about the power of worm poo, along with surprising characters and a colourful miniature set, promise to excite both children and adults alike in the wonder of worms and their importance in the natural world.
