Dr. Zeiffal, Dr. Zeigal, and The Hippo That Can Never Be Caught

Mouths of Lions bring their five star, award- winning, Edinburgh Fringe family favourite show, Dr. Zeiffal, Dr. Zeigal and the Hippo That Can Never Be Caught! to Ireland!

Dr. Zeiffal and Dr. Zeigal and The Hippo That Can Never Be Caught, invites the audience to help the forgetful Dr. Zeiffal catch the crafty Hippo with her patented Hippo Instruments: the Invisible Hippo Blanket, the Hippo Google Goggles and a blizzard of Hippo packaging. Expect belly laughs, belly flops, surreal slapstick and fantastical falling over in this interactive family comedy created by Mouths of Lions.

Bring your hippo catchers and your hippo google goggles, because Dr. Zeiffal has most likely lost hers….
