"highlights the importance of play as a positive force: a means of self expression, for learning, companionship, challenge and teamwork.”
We are all trying to work out our story. Who are we? How are we shaped? Where do we fit in?
Cleo arrives into a new home, unsure of what the future holds. She meets the playful Bertie, who brings her out of her shell, and Leila, who she has more in common with than she first thought.
Life has been unsettled for the trio: Bertie is pushing towards the future, Leila is trying to reconnect with her past and Cleo is searching for answers.
Together they balance, dance and climb to navigate imagined worlds, divided loyalties and loved ones far away. They unite to discover a place called home, the value of play, and together, learn how to own their own stories.
Developed through working creatively with young people in care over a period of years, this "inspiring, engaging, beautifully evocative production” (Everything Theatre) explores a fundamental need we all share - the need to belong.
Nominated for Two Off West End Awards (Best Production, Best Performance by an Ensemble).
