It’s bin day and two rambunctious refuse collectors are heroically cleaning the streets. But what’s this? A dustbin that refuses rubbish.

Delving into its depths, we discover that ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’, as a myriad of stories and treats ensue from all that is rubbish and recycled.

Rhubarb Theatre will be bringing a dustbin of fun, a black sack of eco messages and heaps of mime, physical theatre, comedy, puppetry and creativity into this new story-telling piece, which is suitable for all ages.
