The 52-Storey Treehouse Richard Tulloch , 2015 single work drama children's

'They’re back! Andy and Terry’s Treehouse is now 52 storeys tall, with yet more fantastic inventions: a watermelon smashing room, a chainsaw-juggling level, a rocket powered carrot launcher, and even a Ninja Snail Training Academy.

'Today is a special day. It’s Andy’s birthday, but Terry has forgotten! To make matters worse Mr Big Nose has mysteriously disappeared, and to top it all off, Jill has fallen into a deep sleep and they just can’t wake her up. So Andy and Terry set off on a crazy adventure tackling a world of startling obstacles including a hungry caterpillar, an angry vegetable kingdom, and a 100 year ninja-snail epic voyage. Will they solve the mysteries and survive the dangers that test even their ingenuity?

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s latest bestseller comes to life on the stage as the team behind the hit adaptations of The 13-Storey Treehouse and The 26-Storey Treehouse return with this imaginative and engaging play. So what are you waiting for?' (Production summary)
