FUP: A Modern Fableat The Asylum
The Santee family are unconventional, to say the least.
One-hundred-year-old Granddaddy 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 son-of-a-gun. 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.
