HUMPTY DUMPTY by Rod Dungate


Humpty Dumpty combines all the traditions of pantomime with a modern twist that makes for a hilarious and thrilling entertainment.  With a strong story this old nursery rhyme is transformed into a new 21st Century adventure.

Humpty Dumpty is, in fact Humm T from the planet Dumm T.  He is trapped on Earth by the power-mad scientist Professor Vera Strange.  Humm T can only be released through the brave actions of Tim Pott, son of royal wedding planner, Arabella Pott; he is a reluctant hero.  And the royal weddings are under threat too.  And even worse, there is the terrifying Quacksilotl to be negotiated.

There is, eventually, a happy ending . . . but even that is not quite straightforward.
