NEW FOR SPRING 2015 - We're bringing back our ever-popular classic on materials and their properties, The Big Drip. It was just an ordinary day at the Missing Materials Bureau. Detective T Copper was just closing up shop when a call came through to him…"Some of our materials have gone missing". Who could have perpetrated this evil crime? What's so special about the properties of those materials? And why are there puddles on the carpet? Based on Attainment Target 3 of the National Curriculum for Science, The Big Drip is a quickfire, fast-talking musical comedy. Philip Marlowe meets Guys and Dolls in this light-hearted Film Noir pastiche. Touring the North and South!. .
