Potato has mud on his face.
Potato has mud in his ears.
Potato needs a bath (just don’t get soap in his eyes!)
There is going to be a party, and everyone is ready - except for Potato. Onion is practising his guitar, Aubergine is wearing her new necklace and Peach is bouncing on the bed with excitement.
The problem is Potato needs a bath - but he has other ideas - because Potato loves mud!
Meet Maris Piper and her fruit and vegetable friends in this colourful combination of live and pre-recorded performance based on the much loved theatre show, then join the fruit and vegetable party of the year live online.
Potato Needs a Bath (digital) is based on the original theatre show by Andy Manley & Shona Reppe and was commissioned by Theatre in Schools Scotland, a National Theatre of Scotland and Imaginate partnership.
Get ready for the party:
Children are encouraged to bring a fruit or vegetable friend to the party. We will send you instruction videos in advance with suggestions of what to make to get ready for the vegetable party.
