Bud likes to play – and the community garden seems a good place to start. But who is hiding in the old shed, among the flowerpots or inside the compost heap? Join Bud and his friends in their magical garden, where as the winter frosts thaw, a whole new world of unexpected opportunities begins to appear.

Grubs, Slugs and Boogie Bugs featured original music and design inspired by the 1970s glam period.

This production, presented in fully-integrated British Sign Language and English and was the 2nd of 6 plays developed in this format by the company and which toured nationally.
