We're Stuck! – Theatre. Maths. Robots.

publication date: Feb 24, 2016


We’re Stuck! is an interactive show for children aged eight to 11 that teaches them not to be afraid of mistakes in maths by taking them on a fun adventure with scientists and robots.  

Young adventurers will go on a special tour deep into the heart of Volcano Industries where they meet cutting edge scientists struggling with some unusual and extremely tricky problems in their top-secret research laboratory. In a promenade performance, the ridiculous heroes and the brave young audience go on a voyage of discovery, pitching themselves against ludicrously difficult tasks, getting horribly stuck, and risking total failure.

Running Time: 70 minutes
