FUP

Based on the novel by Jim Dodge

Adapted & directed by Simon Harvey

 

The Santee family are unconventional, to say the least.

One hundred year old Grandaddy Jake and his enormous grandson Tiny live life on the fringes, drinking whiskey, building fences, boasting of immortality. But then, Fup arrives – an ass-kicking, web-footed, feathery sonofagun. See, Fup is a duck. A very big duck. A very big duck indeed... And she is going to change their world forever.

FUP is a big-hearted, uproarious modern fable about family, love and nature set in a weird and wild Cornwall not so different from this one. Featuring live, foot-stomping music, quacking puppetry and Kneehigh’s infamous eccentricity and charm, FUP is a story like no other.

 

All shows at this year's Asylum are suitable for adults,
teenagers and adventurous children over the age of 10.

The Asylum is located at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Pentewan, St Austell PL26 6EN.

There will be a signed performance on Thursday 18th August at 7.45pm
