Zog and the Flying Doctors


  • Main Auditorium
  • 10 February 2022 - 19 February 2022
  • World Premiere - A Rose Original Production
    Rose Theatre and Freckle Productions present

Based on the book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler

Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a crash-bang-thump. Together with his Flying Doctor crew, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout, they tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with one too many horns and a lion with the flu. However, Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked up in the castle back in a crown and a silly frilly dress!  

With a bit of help from some friends and half a pound of cheese, can Pearl make her uncle better and prove princesses can be doctors too? 

Based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling sequel, Freckle Productions (Zog, Stick Man, Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales, Tabby McTat) bring the creative team behind Zog, Emma Kilbey and Joe Stilgoe, back together for this truly modern take on the classic fairy tale.
