” An artfully told tale of boyhood friendship. There is nothing like finding a kindred spirit – the echo of ‘me too!’ – to comfort you in moments of uncertainty.” – The Irish Times
How do you make friends? Meet Alf and B, and discover how they do it!
Like starting school or a new job, nothing is familiar. Two strangers, thrown together, strive to find ways to engage, co-operate and play.
Good pals Alf and B recall the day they first met. Poetic, musical, energetic, poignant and mischievously humorous, this new play, Me Too! explores notions of ‘fitting in’; of being ‘not the same’; of ‘encountering difference’.
Barnstorm teams up again with director and deviser, Sarah Argent and the creative engine that created the international hit The Bockety World of Henry and Bucket, to produce a gem which will resonate with all children whether from the same street or from different parts of the world.
World première of a new play made especially for children aged 4+, their teachers and families.
