A family friendly World War I story featuring the enchanting poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses.
Rediscover the unbridled imagination of childhood in this transporting story of courage, kindness, and bravery, with rousing live folk music and hand carved puppets. With their father in peril on the Western Front, the Connor children turn to their imagination for a comforting distraction from reality. Their spell-binding make believe kingdom comes to life on-stage as they set sail on impossible adventures.
It is a heartening tale of the bitter-sweet remembrance of childhood. The play celebrates a generation of war-time children who had no option but to grow up quickly, and confront the demons beyond their world of innocence.
