Inside (1:30pm performance)
Date: 12th May 2019
Details:  Recommended ages for this show – Ages 2.5 – 4 year olds

“What was it like in mummy’s tummy?” Have you ever heard this question? Or tried to answer? We did and the result is ‘Inside’.

Join us on an immersive journey from conception to birth and share a very special experience with your little one. ‘Inside’ is an intimate, interactive show, specifically devised for 1 – 4 year olds, alongside their families.

Set in a campsite and inspired by life inside the womb, it features multi-sensory activities, shadow theatre, live soundmaking and object theatre.

How is it inside? How do the inside and the outside talk to each other? How much sound and light comes in? How do we meet?

‘Inside’ has been devised in consultation with young children, their families and nursery staff. It is supported by the Arts Council England, Kent County Council, Canterbury City Council, Looping the Loop, TheQuarterhouse, The Hullabaloo, The Gulbenkian and Baby Sensory Thanet.

Details:  Don't miss this enthralling mystery-thriller written by Philip King & John Boland, and directed by Ian D Field.

However, the sudden death of one of them leads to life imitating art. As rehearsals continue it becomes apparent that almost any one of them might, and could, have murdered the victim - leading to the identity of the killer being revealed in the final curtain."
