Guess How Much I Love You
Georges Marvelous MedicineAdapted for the stage by David Wood.  Based on the books by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram.
Produced by Sally Humphreys Productions on a long UK National tour in 2010, opening at the Rose Theatre, Kingston.  The production also visited Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Georges Marvelous MedicineMuch loved characters Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare leap off the page and onto the stage! 

David Wood

This endearing pair, helped by their friend Lucy, take the audience on a magical journey through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

With plenty of games, songs and audience participation, GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU is the perfect introduction to theatre for very young children, and is enjoyed by the not-so-young too!
The classic picture book, in which the two Hares compete to think of how much they love each other, forms the final part of the play.

'Wood's mission to catch theatregoers young is worth it, and these infants - not one of whom screamed, grumbled, or demanded the lavatory - now know that a theatre is an exciting place where safe adventures happen and grown-ups want to play.' 
The Times, 14th July 2010.

' ... a clever as well as charming show .... it's all much more fun than simply an all-the-year-round natural history lesson as a caterpillar turns into a butterfly, a tadpole grows up into a frog, bees buzz round in search of honey, a stream ripples and flowers bloom in their season.  The music encourages singalong ...'

'... runs sweet as a nut .... David Wood has a gift for making his storybook shows an all-enveloping experience ... exuberant and reassuringly familiar, this is a cheerfully inclusive introduction to the theatre for the very young.' 
The Stage, 24th May 2010.
