What’s the point of slugs? What is in your compost? Why is Alan Titchmarsh so attractive? Get answers in this delightful vegetable cultivation-based show starring two of the UK finest musical comedians (and real-life allotmenteers) Jo Stephenson and Dan Woods.
When they’re not chitting potatoes, double digging or hiding in their sheds, accordion-wielding Dan and ukulele-toting Jo are familiar faces on London’s comedy and cabaret scene.
Can You Dig It? premieres at Edinburgh’s prestigious Royal Botanic Garden at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
No filth (except mud).
Jo Stephenson has an allotment in north London, where she grows weeds and slugs. She is a prolific songwriter and can regularly be seen performing with her ukulele in venues across London and the UK. She recently launched her first album, called Jo Stephenson. Her music has been heard on Radio 4 and she claims to be able to write a song about anything.
Dan Woods has an allotment in south London, half way up a hill and surrounded by trees. He has performed his accordion-based comedy shows to critical acclaim in Edinburgh and across the UK, both solo and with his band Pig With The Face Of A Boy. His song A Complete History of the Soviet Union, arranged to the melody of Tetris, has become an internet sensation, receiving over 2,000,000 views since its release in 2010.
