BOV Free 30th MayIn celebration of the Bristol Old Vic’s 250th Anniversary, Monkey Trousers Theatre are bringing a specially modified version of their latest hilarious family adventure, Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop: The Great British Cheese Off! to the Old Vic Studio in two special, FREE for all, performances. Come along and visit the totally magically amazing shop where you can buy anything and everything you could ever dream of, sold by the enigmatic puppet shopkeeper, Mr Gotalot.

It’s business as usual in the magical Gotalot Shop. But what’s this? A very unexpected customer has arrived, and they’re after the bestest, most cheesiest  cheese, for a highly prestigious cheese contest. Yes! The Gotalot Shop is hosting ‘The Great British Cheese Off’ and everyone is very excited. Especially the shop’s cantankerous, interfering, old landlady, Ms Barnet, who is determined to win. Ms Barnet simply loves cheese. But the contest is hosted by her arch-nemesis, the super-perfect Hairy Mary Berry. Will Mr Gotalot be able to provide the ultimate, winning cheese – and keep mean old Ms Barnet happy? Or will Hairy Mary Berry triumph over her old rival yet again? And what is Sidney the shop boy doing with that microphone in his hand?
