A mole and a gecko are starting a journey.
With songs and with poetry too.
A quest for adventure – a quest with a duck!
And all that they’re missing is YOU!

Gecko sings songs and lives at the edge of the water. Mole likes rap and lives on the warm rock. This unlikely pair are off on a journey down the river on a boat. Mole and Gecko is an adventure story that the audience (that’s you!) help create. There are live songs, rap stories, instant poems and a weasel with a serious biscuit problem.
