Runtime
40 minutes

With the pantomimic humour of Monty Python and the heart of a Pixar film, The Questing Beast tells the story of King Pellinore, who was tasked by his father to hunt for the elusive Questing Beast.
But when Pellinore and his Fool meet Grummore Grummersum, they are offered a warm bed and the temptation to give up their quest. Without his search for the Beast to guide him, Pellinore must now find a new purpose in life.

Did we mention that this show has a ten-foot tall giraffe puppet?

Suitable for ages 4+

Sensory description

Mostly dialogue with very little movement except that between scenes.
There are a few sight gags, and giant puppet giraffe, so it may be hard for someone without sight to follow those moments completely.
Similarly, a deaf person may have a hard time following most of the story.
