2017 rolled around so quickly and that means Henry and Bucket are going on the road.
The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket travels to North America to delight family audiences in New York, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, Kansas, Arkansas and four cities in Ontario, Canada. Paul Curley (Bucket) and Aidan Crowe (Henry), along with crew Steve Rider and Joe Glasgow, fly to New York in advance of the first performance on Sunday January 15.
Poetic, humorous and rich in visual antics, this play explores friendship through a day in the life of two friends who have been likened to a modern-day Laurel and Hardy. For children aged 4+.
This tour is supported by Culture Ireland.

“Barnstorm is…wickedly sure-footed with their Samuel Beckett meets Heath-Robinson two- hander…There’s touching humanity amidst the hilarity” 4**** STARS! – The Herald Scotland
“…achieved that rather amazing goal of being able to make a small and limited world as big as the sky through inventiveness and imagination, something children have the capacity to do and adults too easily forget. Their fantastical car journey is a joy to behold!” – The Edinburgh Guide
