This exquisite integration of puppetry, animation, mask and physical theatre rides a live, musical score, drawing us into a tale woven with magical-realism and wonder.
Deftly told without any words, children and adults are treated as equals, engaging with the big questions of life, death, love & loss through the poetry of theatre. Packed with beauty, humour and great heart, the show is poignant and thought-provoking as well as joyous and cheeky.
Like a well-loved picture book, The Package is an enchanting story for all ages… told with a difference.
“Mesmerising & Captivating. Bravo.”
“Gripping … I couldn’t look away"
“No dialogue! But the show said it all.”
“Visually stunning and unfailingly graceful.”
"Funny, sad and deeply satisfying"
“There should be more shows like this”
“The Package is truly a compelling work, rich in subject and varied in tone and theatrical elements. Quality abounds. When I left the theatre I felt that I had not only been charmed, but stirred deeply.”
