In 2019 Henry was selected to co-write a brand new children's spoken word theatre show for Half Moon Theatre, and Apples and Snakes, as part of SPINE FESTIVAL. It was commissioned then for a digital tour in 2020, a short live tour 2021, and then a full live tour in 2022

When Crusty and his scruffy cat Dollop arrive on Supreme Street, things will never be the same again. After meeting their neighbours, Dr. D and her spotless feline Crinkle, things quickly get out of hand. Soon there’s a full-scale battle of words, tinned beans and cooking pots, fuelled by misunderstandings and the inability to listen to others.

This spoken word poetry show is heartfelt, provocative and full of quirky humour, telling the action-packed story of new friendships and adventures that go cat-astrophically wrong.

The Cat-Astrophic Adventures of Dollop and Crinkle is a Half Moon and Apples and Snakes co-production: an exciting collaboration by the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s theatre company and England’s leading spoken word poetry organisation, commissioned in association with SPINE Festival 2021.
