Sports Day meets Sheep Trials in Mufti Games’ new interactive show for high streets, green fields and shopping centres, inspired by the much-loved TV show of the same (ish) name.
Sheep are on the loose! Only the shepherds and their hapless sheepdog Patch can prevent certain chaos.
Your festival site becomes our playing field, your street furniture our obstacle course in this physical, cooperative game for younger children and their families.
One Kid and their Dog draws on age old traditions of playground and street games, encouraging people to play together over wide spaces.
Made for the silly sheep and straight-laced shepherd in all of us, with opportunities to join the lost flock and for young farmhands to take the reins, One Kid and their Dog provides a hilarious chance to play with playing-by-the-rules.
Original concept Simon Day, Malcolm Hamilton and Brook.
