Babe The Sheep Pig in the open air at Hartland Abbey
DICK King-Smith's glorious children's classic Babe The Sheep Pig is performed in the open air at Hartland Abbey by Illyria next week. The heartwarming tale of friendship, courage and determination is vividly brought to life by the same creative team behind Illyria's record-breaking 2012 production of The Twits.
It's the story of Farmer Hogget who wins a piglet at the fair – and everyone knows what unfortunate fate awaits piglets on a farm. Adopted by Fly the sheepdog, Babe develops his own methods of herding sheep using politeness instead of barking orders, and even saves the flock from being stolen by sheep rustlers.
But Farmer Hogget is a hard man to please. So when Babe is entered for the county sheep dog trials he is going to need Fly's help, all his wits, and as much politeness as he can muster if he is going to get the sheep to co-operate, win the trials, and save his bacon.
Babe The Sheep Pig – Ilyria is at Hartland Abbey on Wednesday, August 28, 5pm. Tickets: £12.50 (adult), £10 (concession), £9 (Plough supporter), £27, £36, £45 (family).
