What is friendship? What happens when it goes wrong?

What do you have to do to make it work?

The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket, looks at friendship through a day in the life of two friends who live in a bockety world of discarded objects.

This brand new Barnstorm play is directed and devised by Sarah Argent, writer and freelance director in Theatre for Young Audiences. She regularly works with the award-winning Theatr Iolo in Cardiff.

Henry and Bucket are best pals, although sometimes you wouldn’t think so! Like all good friends they have their ups and downs, their battles and reconciliations, their shared adventures and at times their need for their own space.

But as long as these two friends are together, transofrming their rusty, dusty, battered and bockety world into a place of wonder, their adventures can take them anywhere!

This play is poetic, humorous and rich in narrative; an intriguing, thought-provoking exploration of friendship for young children.

A play for children aged 4 and older.

Running time: 40 minutes

Tickets: €6 each or €15 for Family Ticket.
