In a wondrous land over the sea

I found some eggs with legs like me

One day a huge egg landed in their tree

Will it hatch out and what will it be?

It is a strange egg like no other

Can they care for it and where is it's mother?

Storyline of the show

Mark Pitman is the wonderful physical performer who takes us on a journey to a land of sand and wind where a family of funny and inspiring puppets, Eggs on Legs live in a rusty old bunker.

The show opens when the wind blows a hole in the roof of the shed. Pepe and Lela fly away in their eggplane to leave the 2 children and the eggdog alone at home. The adventure unfolds when a mysterious egg arrives in a gust of wind and Chico tries to play with it. As it hatches out Chico learns to care for it and encounters many surprises along the way.

The show is a warmhearted, poetic story with nurturing at its heart with beautifully crafted and manipulated puppets and gentle clowning.
