The Song of Fergus and Kate

Filled with the charm of a children’s cartoon, The Song of Fergus and Kate is a quaint story about friendship and embracing differences that any child would find fascinating.

A quaint story

After being called a monster because of his hump, Fergus runs away to the beach where he meets Kate. The two spend time playing on the beach, showing the importance of acceptance and not judging people by how they look. Filled with an innocence and simplicity, this is a show that is perfectly made for children and would shame any adult whose belief system falls contrary to the plot line.

Accompanied by an animation on a screen behind the stage, this story is told in a gentle rhyme that is incredibly comforting. The stage becomes the beach, and there is a natural beauty and unearthliness that is recreated. With small breaks to include us in the storytelling, this show has an easy charm and warmth which would delight children and evoke a sense of nostalgia in adults.

The Song Fergus and Kate is filled with subtle messaging and lessons that are easily swallowed, from the dangers of mob mentality and single use plastic. It’s a gentle tale that is incredibly soothing to watch, a great start to anyone's morning.

Reviews by Katerina Partolina Schwartz

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

The Blurb

'Fergus himself was a little stunned and stared with eyes like dinner plates then said: 'My name is Fergus'. She replied: 'And mine is Kate'. In that very second, each of them had found a friend whose souls would remain entangled from now until the end.' An interactive adventure that uses storytelling, music and animation to encourage children to celebrate their differences. 'The animation and music really make the story come alive, perfect for my hyper four-year-old, the right amount of story to action' (Audience member).
