What happens when real life and fairy tales collide?
Take a motley crew of time-travelling storytellers, an allotment gone to seed, two orphaned sisters and a lonely Prince. Add a magical book. And don’t forget the garden pea. Can the Captain and her crew help Sweetpea save the allotment and find a happily-ever-after story for her sister Marigold? Or will they create even more havoc along the way? Likely Story's new family show is an enchanting adventure where fairy tales collide, and the closest thing to a happy ending just might be a hopeful beginning

"...thank you all for such a tremendous performance. The children were enraptured, in fact I have never seen them so quiet and attentive. Adults also praised “pea”, saying that they found it funny, delightful and nostalgic. It was a very entertaining evening leaving us all wanting more, roll on your next performance."
