The Iguanodon Restaurant

The Iguanodon Restaurant is an outdoor theatre performance for families set in a life size dinosaur. The show lasts for 35 minutes and tells the story of the birth of geology in a fast and furious romp through 60 years of scientific discovery. As the story unfolds eccentric characters emerge from history; they compete for fame, laying claim to the biggest and most famous bones. They posed new questions that shook society: How come these creatures no longer exist? What does this tell us about the world we live in? How old is humankind?
