Toured Autumn 2010
When Dolly the sheep burst onto the world stage in 1996, the first ever mammal cloned from an adult cell (and named after Dolly Parton in honour of the mammary gland from which that cell was taken!), she became, quite simply, an overnight sensation. Packed full of Country & Western classics, Dolly playfully explores the science and morality of cloning and asks what really makes us who we are - nature, nurture, or the power of our dreams?

Target audience age: Adults and older children
Running time: 120 minutes plus interval
