TRANSLUCENT FROGS OF QUUUP by Chris Larner, music by Chris Larner and Mark Stevens. Starring Jonathan Robbins (Anthony Marigold-Bentley), Rosalie Craig (Edith), Chris Larner, Mark Stevens. The story of Anthony Marigold-Bentley, , and his new bride Edith , who leave the safety of the Surbiton/New Malden borders to take a canoe up the Amazon, in search of adventure, the eponymous frogs, and a bit of privacy. The year is 1922. Far up river, they become increasingly concerned at the quantity of comic songs that are accompanying them. To their horror, they discover that two men have stowed away in a hatbox in the luggage. One has a grand piano with him. The other seems to consider himself some kind of narrator for their trip. Will their new-minted marriage survive the appalling slur that it is merely a theatrical invention? How will they get on with the un-pronounceable tribe of the Quuup?
