How to Catch a StarBased on Oliver Jeffers' beautifully illustrated book, Branar Teatar do Phaisti return to the Southbank Centre to present the theatre show of How to Catch a Star. Following the story of a boy who dreamt of having a star as a friend, the performance combines puppetry and a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire. Directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn, Branar's signature storytelling creates a show that reminds everyone to follow their dreams.
