The Tiger’s Bones and Other Stories

  • Show Information

New Perspectives bring three hugely imaginative and funny stories from one of the giants of 20th century British poetry vividly to life in a brand new production for children and family audiences.
The Coming of the Kings is a wild retelling of the nativity. Sean, the Fool, the Devil and The Cats
is a cautionary tale about eating the wrong person’s stew.
The Tiger’s Bones is a brief history of the foolishness of
modern man. Ted Hughes had a lifelong passion for nurturing creativity in the young and this dazzling and brilliant collection of short plays for children and families follows in the footsteps of How the Whale Became and The Iron Man. This energetic ensemble production blends drama, comedy, poetry and music and promises to transport you into a joyous world of mischief and mayhem. 1hr 10, 7yr+
