Featuring intricate movements, play and lots of audience interaction, Plastic Drastic Fantastic at The Lowry uses stories and experiences from children and young people to celebrate and highlight the  fantastic possibilities that plastics offer us, while also highlighting the tragic consequences of plastic, when it is put to the wrong use.
