A lighthearted yet poignant Daryl & Co and Mimbre co-production about friendship and growing up.
about the production
Look Mum, No Hands! is a Daryl & Co and Mimbre co-production. Look Mum, No Hands! is a tender tale of friendship and growing up. It explores a coming-of-age story about two friends testing their own boundaries. Together they explore freedom, taking risks and independence. They see how those things change, depending on who you are.

“beautifully, hilariously and poignantly [shows] what can be achieved physically together with some trial and error!”
“it made me cry – very moving […] At first, they try to do everything the same, but learn to celebrate their differences.”
Completely utterly charming!
The show is predominantly non-verbal
All performances are relaxed performances
Design: high colour contrasts between the set design and the performers' costumes to support audiences to distinguish the movement of the performers.
