Take Castaway, the Marx Bothers and It’s a Wonderful Life, mix them all up and you get this story which shows us that no man is an island. 

Knick lives alone on a big smelly island of rubbish but it all changes when Doo Dad arrives. He’s here to help, but actually ends up making everything worse. If only he could show Knick what friends are for he knows that the rubbish dump would burst into flower. We want you to help us and to join in with the rubbish storm, the crying chorus, and with making bubbly fire and ha-ha food in this highly interactive show about how silly it is to be sad. We'll have great fun as we transform our trash into amazing new toys and reboot your recycling routine into something special. Come along and discover all the reasons to be cheerful and find out what finally makes Knick Knack smile!
