The Feast That Went Off With A Bang

There’s only one way this party is going to end - Birds filled with Mice filled with Sausages filled with premium gunpowder…

Sausages must, more often than not, wriggle and wiggle to season the pot
Mice are nice and twice as able as sausages at laying a table

Birds, Mice and Sausages all live together in perfect harmony, until now. Just like in all families, tension is never far away especially when it comes to the issue of household chores. Unfortunately for our strange cast of characters all ends as you might expect in disaster, with a warning for us all – never eat a mouse that has eaten a sausage that is filled to the brim with gunpowder!

The Feast That Went Off With A Bang was nominated for a British Composer Award in 2017.
