Eat Me



“Something is coming from far, far away,

a giant airship, bright blue and yellow

steered by a creature with thin bony hands.

And if you listen carefully you can hear voices;

crackly, hushed and whispering…




In June 2015, A Moment’s Peace, in co-production with Platform, launched our latest show with a tour of primary schools and venues around Scotland.


Fast-paced and full of surprises, Eat Me is an immersive theatrical thriller for 7-11-year-olds and their families, tackling the issues of food, health and systems of consumption throughout the playful and entertaining story of Eric and his friend Glob. But with the Feeders lurking around every corner, it's even a little scary too!

“Creative, engaging, fun, beautiful and thought-provoking!”


Teacher, Haghill Primary

The show is supported by a workshop offering audiences another opportunity to dig a little deeper into the issues explored by Eric’s adventure. It raises young people’s awareness about food advertising and food production, with a specific focus on how young audiences are targeted by the food industry. The workshop is interactive and inquisitive and is supported by a Curriculum for Excellence Resource Pack full of practical and accessible workshop ideas

“That was like a brilliant episode of Doctor Who. Glob’s obviously The Doctor!”

“The class were completely absorbed from start to finish. It was a very powerful and thought-provoking performance created in a way that is accessible to all. One of the best educational productions I have seen”.


Teacher, Craigroyston Primary


“It was great being immersed in the play, and the children really enjoyed seeing it from this viewpoint. I was really impressed with the discussions the children had afterwards and would definitely be interested in seeing future productions from A Moment’s Peace”.
