“Theatre of this excellence does more than entertain its youthful audiences. It is also taste-forming, and helps to prepare them for the adult theatre to come.” – The Irish Times, March 16th, 2005

Andy is stuck. His parents have split up, he won’t play with his best friend and he is being bullied in the playground…by a girl! Things change when his father returns to look after him for a few days. As they start to re-build their relationship, Andy’s confidence grows. Before long, he’s ready to tackle his troubles and fears, with surprising  results…

This compassionate, insightful and richly humorous play gently illustrates the pain of separation, the politics of the playground and the extraordinary power of the imagination.

A play for children aged 7 – 12.
