You, Me and the Space Between : Ten Days on the Island 2017

Presented by Terrapin Puppet Theatre and Ten Days on the Island 2017

The Island of the Proud Circle has sprung a leak and its citizens must find a way to stop their home from disappearing altogether.

It takes the wandering, wondering mind of a child to save the island, its people and their ways. Adventures happen, horizons widen, important things are said:

“Unknowns, which worry us, can actually hold unthoughtofs, which teach us.”

Artist Tom O’Hern will draw the story as actor Jane Longhurst narrates it and puppeteer Felicity Horsley brings it to magical life. With words by Finegan Kruckemeyer, direction by Sam Routledge and a musical score by Dean Stevenson, this is storytelling at its creative best.

Laugh, lift, think, hope. For all the family.
