21 October - 26 October 2017

George lives on a farm with his Mum and Dad. Life for George takes an unexpected and rather unpleasant twist when his horrible, mean, selfish Grandma arrives. What’s worse than her just being there is that it looks like she’s staying. For a very long time! George tries to make her 'better' (by which we mean ‘nicer’) by creating a marvellous medicine. However much to everyone’s surprise it has the most extraordinary effect on Grandma. Just you wait to see what that is!

George’s marvellous medicine could prove handy on the farm but his attempts to make more medicine lead to hilarious and frustrating happenings...

An exciting caper for anyone with a sense of adventure. Bring your Granny, she’ll like it too!
