They say that happiness is watching a plant start to grow… well how about a whole stage?
Uprooted is a unique outdoor theatre experience for children and families, fusing live performance, music and living plants with innovative stage design.
Join us outdoors amongst a curious world of plants for an enchanting tale of kinship and home, told through music, movement, and multi-sensory storytelling. A waft of mint, a crunch of peas, a sprinkle of fresh herbs in a cup of tea…rediscover the joy of our natural world, and have a nibble on the home-grown set!

Uprooted features Scotland’s first Living Stage; a recyclable, biodegradable, edible set created from locally found, reclaimed materials. Part theatre show, part garden and part art installation, audiences will get the chance to interact by nibbling on plants, smelling herbs, and sampling drinks.
At the end of its tour, the Living Stage will return to the Glasgow Primary School where it was grown, with set pieces becoming their planters, its plants their food and its waste their compost, turning an inner-city playground into an enticing, unique garden.
