Pass the Spoon

World premiere of a spectacular new 'sort of opera' from David Shrigley, David Fennessy and Nicholas Bone

By David Shrigley, David Fennessy and Nicholas Bone

Director Nicholas Bone

Conductor Garry Walker
Lighting Designer Simon Wilkinson
Sound Designer Kenny MacLeod


World premiere of a spectacular new performance from the minds of hugely popular visual artist David Shrigley, award-winning composer David Fennessy and acclaimed director Nicholas Bone, with music played by the Red Note Ensemble.

Pass the Spoon is the latest show from Magnetic North (the company behind two sell-out national tours of Walden) and is the recipient of a prestigious Creative Scotland Vital Spark award.


“Weird, funny, abject, wise, silly, savage, moral and engaging.”
The Independent on What the Hell Are You Doing? The Essential David Shrigley


What can we say about Pass the Spoon?


It’s a show with actors, music and food.

It’s a bit like an opera, but with vegetables and fruit.

It’s about cooking.

It’s possibly the only show you’ll see this year featuring a dung beetle.

Oh and someone gets eaten. Did we mention that?
