Amazing Buxton house with views over Pavilion Gardens, two separate cottages and apartment on market for just under £2 million
This year Buxton is producing Gargantua written by Carl Grose which tells the story of Mr and Mrs Mungus, whose newborn baby isn’t the bouncing blue-eyed boy they were hoping for. After a two and a half year pregnancy, Mini Mungus gives birth to a monster one with an accelerated growth rate. But when military scientists become intent on cloning an army of huge babies from the giant, he breaks his chains and escapes. Who will stop this freak of nature? Who will decide his tragic fate? And who, more importantly, will change his nappy?
Gargantua is at the Pavilion Arts Centre from March 3 to 5. Tickets £10 to £12. Contact 0845 127 2190 or visit www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk
