When Farmer Hogget wins a pig named Babe at the county fair and brings him home to fatten up (for reasons we will not discuss), the farm is never again the same. With the help of an ageing sheep dog, Babe discovers his talent for herding, politely convincing the sheep to follow his lead. His new-found skills are put to the test when the farmer enters him in the Grand Sheep-dog Trials.

Will Babe be toasted or roasted? It’s the question of the day that’s answered in the play.
