In an abandoned greenhouse Ash, a heroic fernn, Clover a soon-to-bloom flower and Braxlin, a sturdy hedge, will have to battle their way to the front garden to avoid being mulched to make space for a Hot Tub.

The three friends will have to work together to fight Narcoleptic Sunflowers, Vegetables on benefits and Donald Stump on their path to freedom. But will the appearance of a busty Rose jeopardise their chances of escape? Blood & Bone combines puppets, puns and poor taste to guarantee you’ll soil yourself. After all: Life’s a prick.

Blood & Bone is part political satire, part pixar movie combined into a dark & cheeky adult puppet show, created by Cicada Studios.
