Born from Meyyappan’s original solo work SNAILS & KETCHUP, SKEWERED SNAILS is a darkly comic tale of a dysfunctional family and a boy who flees to the tree tops to seek solace from the brutality of his father.

SKEWERED SNAILS introduces award winning Billy Mack as the impossible father, Adura Onashile as the ineffectual mother and Sita Pieraccini as the sibling rival to Ramesh Meyyappan, the boy compelled to live on trees for the rest of his life after promising ‘never to touch the ground again’ following relationship breakdowns with his family.

"The show's aerial choreography is powerful…its passionate commitment to the freedom of the human spirit - emerges with a clarity and charm that wins a warm and delighted audience response". The Scotsman on Snails & Ketchup

SKEWERED SNAILS is a highly physical performance boasting half a tonne of rope and four exceptionally dynamic performers.

Snails & Ketchup was nominated for Total Theatre Awards UK. Ramesh was a winner of Life! Theatre Awards Singapore (Best Actor) 2011.

SKEWERED SNAILS has been commissioned by the Unlimited programme, part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Unlimited is principally funded by the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributer and is delivered in partnership with London 2012 and Creative Scotland.
