The show

Spielberg should be amused and touched by what this young trio have produced… both irreverent and reverent.The London Times

This laugh-out-loud spin on Spielberg’s classic Jurassic Park is an award-winning theatrical celebration of cinematic nostalgia, and a powerful reminder of the ones we love. Join the Park family as they embark on a journey to a misty past. When things go wrong, family feuds are faced with the rapturous roar of DIY dinosaurs.

This epic adventure of show-stopping, spine-tingling theatrics and megalithic mayhem was a total sell-out at Edinburgh Fringe 2015.

This is the sort of inventive, uncynical show that you’d have to be a real monster to resist.Time Out
