Noelle Brown and Iseult Casey in Monday’s Child

For children aged 4 – 8
Running time: 45 mins

Barnstorm takes its delightful Monday’s Child on national tour in spring 2016, thanks to an award from the Arts Council’s Funding for Touring scheme! Teachers, make sure you take the opportunity to bring your classes to see this beautiful and funny, poignant and  sensitive play at a venue near you in February or March.

Monday’s Child tells the simple poetic story of the unique bond between a little girl and an old woman suffering memory loss. The play has been wowing audiences since Barnstorm first produced it in 2013.

Booking information will be sent to schools in January. Check back here, or on Facebook  in the New Year for more information and videos:
