Bin Men by Mike Kenny

A play with music for young children and their families

Don and Sam are bin men with dreams. Big dreams!

They want to save the world and they want to have fun doing it!

Bin men see everything we throw away – and we throw away so many things.

With Don and Sam around we may just need to think again.

They can find a use for anything.

Bin Men is an exciting new co-production between York Theatre Royal and nationally and internationally acclaimed ajtc.

'These are artists whose experience in engaging theatre-goers shines through.'Carl Miller Associate Director (Literacy) Unicorn Theatre London

Written by multi-award winning writer Mike Kenny and directed by Rosamunde Hutt it is a story of music, movement, recycling, re-using, puppetry and fun.



‘Did you mean to throw that away?’

‘I dropped it in my bin because I didn't want it. It's rubbish.’

‘I just think you might want to think again.’
