A lady, a Trunk and a collection of stories from around the globe.

An interactive storytelling show designed to unleash the imagination of children from 4 years + (and those of their adults too!) A Trunk is a box for belongings, belongings that have travelled far and wide…. Especially when it belongs to this particular lady…

Join her to share in tales of boastful toads; magical fish and fearsome beasts of the wild woods. Using puppetry and the contents of her magical trunk she will create Arabic seas; epic mountains; fields of turnips and the tallest trees. The children are invited into the performance by creating waves, helping to find a suitor for the mouse bride and even acting out a character or two from the stories.

Age Guidance: 4+

Running Time: 60 minutes (approx.)

"Tell Tale Hearts present truly inspiring shows for children that involve the audience in a uniquely thrilling way" - Ian McMillan (poet)
