Time to decide once and for all… Cake or biscuit?

Inspired by the 1991 tribunal which determined the true identity of a Jaffa Cake, multi-award winning Gigglemug Theatre (Scouts! The Musical, RuneSical, Timpson: The Musical) present a brand-new musical comedy for the whole family!

Jaffa Cakes are a British institution but their identity has always prompted debate, so Team Gigglemug, known for creating seriously silly musicals based on existing brands, set out to shed light on one of the most bizarre and heated legal battles in recent history. Whether you’re a Jaffanatic or have never even eaten a Jaffa Cake, this new musical takes the biscuit (or cake…?).

Gigglemug’s debut show was the Edinburgh Fringe hit Timpson: The Musical (sponsored by everyone’s favourite high street shop, Timpson) which won The Stage Edinburgh Award and made it into The Guardian’s pick of the Fringe. In 2022, the company returned to Edinburgh with their critically-acclaimed interactive production RuneSical, based on the BAFTA-winning online game RuneScape. Last year, Gigglemug staged Scouts! The Musical (created in partnership with The Scouts) at The Other Palace which was nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award for Best Off-West End Production.
