The Journey HomeThe Journey Home, the acclaimed children's book by award-winning author Frann Preston-Gannon, is brought to life through puppetry, lyrical music and transformative design for children aged 4 to 11. Join Polar Bear as he sets off in search of a new home in this "inspiring and clever approach to environmental issues", according to one audience member at the lovely Little Angel Theatre. The only words spoken are at end, in a message from the now extinct dodo and, "as the only spoken words in 40 minutes they have impact" (Childplays).

 

About Little Angel Theatre

The Little Angel Theatre was founded by John Wright in 1961 in a derelict temperance hall in Islington. Every type of puppet is used, and themes, styles and stories are drawn from a wide range of cultural traditions. The company tours throughout the UK and abroad and The Little Angel also has an extensive Education Programme, which works with schools and youth groups. More about Little Angel Theatre
