The Ballad of Pondlife McGurk
Barking Gecko Theatre Company (Australia) & Windmill theatre Production Company (Scotland)
by arrangement with Catherine Wheels Theatre Company

Pondlife McGurk was a troublesome child, some called him stupid, some called him wild.

When Martin moves to a new school he feels lost in a sea of strange faces, especially when class bully Sharon takes a disliking to him. That is, until he meets Simon McGurk. A friendship begins that not only changes Martin, but curses Simon for the rest of his school days. Created by the remarkable Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, Barking Gecko presents a coming-of-age tale about just how difficult it can be to stay true to your friends.

“The very model of audience-capturing storytelling.” - Theatre Guide London
