Mr Maglump

Mr Maglump is a musical based on a story Brook wrote for his two nieces. It was developed in collaboration with the literary department at Bristol Old Vic. Brook developed the story into a musical, writing and composing music on the piano, teaching himself the instrument through the process. 

My Great Giraffe - Bristol Old Vic

My Great Giraffe is a fun, encouraging piece which encourages us all to focus on the silver linings in life. Developed with Bristol Old Vic, it includes a life-size(-ish) puppet which Brook took with him to visit patients at The Children's Hospital in Bristol, bringing smiles to their faces.
