Daucus Carota -The Wild Carrot, is a light hearted look at the romance of ancient Celtic traditions, myths and associations.

The project took root during a spell working in schools in which the pupils were encouraged to research some of our ancient traditions and work with the company to develop a performance piece.

At a later date the company developed some of those themes and encouraged Tom McGrath and John Cobb to share their humour.

 

Daucus Carota was performed as a prelude to 'Reply' but Derek and Lyn retained excerpts from it to perform as a fill in piece at several festivals.

For the cast the performance marked an defining moment in their stage careers.

It was the first time they had danced together as carrots.
