Market Street, Trowbridge, BA14 8EQ

My name is Tony and I have the most extraordinary friend…Pablo Picasso!

Come and play down on the farm with Tony and Picasso. We’ll have loads of fun, make crazy pictures and we’ll tell the true story of how a young boy became friends with one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

This is a 'messy' theatre show with lots of interactive fun to engage young children.

The show is based on a Thames Hudson publication of the same name, and is touring around the country - see the growing gallery of 'Picasso' pictures from Untied Artists.

“This is slightly irregular, isn't it? Some of these tasks seem really weird. Number 7 looks like it’s written in code and I’m pretty sure number 5 is illegal...”

The cast is lead by Lizzie Stables, a graduate of the Arc Theatre Trowbridge’s Youth Theatre who has gone on to study at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and is best known for playing Chloe in The Inbetweeners.

Across five centuries of British history, small groups of children seek sanctuary in the same solid, old wardrobe. It's the safest place they know – but is it safe enough?

The Wardrobe is the newest play by National Theatre Studio resident playwright Sam Holcroft. It is a fresh and intimate tale of a 500-year-old wardrobe and the many children who visit it.

Sam rises to the exciting challenge of writing for young audiences and companies of performers by exploring subjects that have been constant across time and place.
