From children's author and award-winning comedian David O'Doherty comes a comedy show for those aged five to eight.

'I can't stop thinking about sausage rolls because I had sausage rolls earlier, but the harder I try not to think about sausage rolls, the more I can't stop thinking about sausage rolls. Now my head is full of sausage rolls, break-dancing and bungee jumping and a sausage roll with a guitar playing rock'n'roll.

David has forgotten how to fall asleep - the sausage rolls keep getting in the way. He knows he has done it before, but he just can't quite remember how. This wouldn't be so bad except it's bedtime and he has just woken Maeve up...

This hilarious and fantastical night-time journey takes in sharks, ice cream, dinosaur shopping centres, pirates and sheep. Can you help David fall asleep?

I Can't Sleep

You can see why David O’Doherty might appeal to children: with his soft features, shaggy hairstyle and sloppy demeanour, he’s virtually a breathing cuddly toy.
