Join Pigfoot Theatre in this digital manifestation of How to Save a Rock, a bike-powered family comedy about how to still have hope.

What to expect

It’s 2026, and we’ve found a letter from the last ever polar bear. He’s somehow ended up at the top of Scotland. We’re going to save him.

Join us on a wild polar bear chase, through peat bogs and protests. We might just need your help…

The show is entirely carbon-neutral. The lighting is powered by solar-power and a bike cycled live on stage, production materials are recycled and recyclable, all sound effects are created live and we offset the digital footprint of streaming.

This show will take place on Youtube. You will receive an email with all the details and event link the day before.

About Pigfoot Theatre

Pigfoot are a multi award-winning carbon-neutral theatre company, dedicated to making collaborative theatre with and for those grappling with the climate and ecological crisis. We reject the current systems we live in, but we embrace ecosystems and global connectivity. We make devised work with and for those grappling with climate and ecological crisis, as well as running workshops for schools, young people and theatre makers.

Our work ‘practises what it preaches about climate change.’ (The Sunday Times on Pigfoot) and protests from within an industry which, in London alone, has been shown to have a carbon footprint of 50,000 tonnes a year – roughly equivalent to driving a car 1.5 million times around the M25.

WINNER of the Sustainable Fringe Award 2019 for Best Company, an inaugural prize at the last Edinburgh Fringe, recognising those with the will and creativity to tackle climate change.
