Scrub-a-Dub with Mrs Wishy-Washy

“Oh, lovely mud!” exclaim Mrs Wishy-Washy’s farm animals Cow, Duck, and Pig. These beloved characters from Joy Cowley’s series of picture books are about to come to life in a hilarious stage performance by Tim Bray Theatre Company. While the animals just love getting mucky, Mrs Wishy-Washy is determined to keep them spotless for the Big Farm Fair.

In this funny farmyard adventure, audiences will be treated to comical chaos as Mrs Wishy-Washy attempts to give her muddy animal buddies a good scrub.

This tale teaches valuable lessons about determination, friendship and the consequences of one’s actions, while offering plenty of opportunities to enjoy some good, clean, laugh-out loud fun.

“Mrs Wishy-Washy is more than just a comfortable hour-long dalliance in the theatre. It is a fine addition to children’s theatre repertoire and it does Joy Cowley proud on every level.

It’s well worth a visit, but get in quick because it’s bound to sell out.”

– Lexie Matheson, Theatreview
