Punchdrunk announce a New Show for Children in North London

Punchdrunk’s Small Wonders will be performed at Bernie Grant Arts Centre as part of this summer’s LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre) 2018. Directed by Peter Higgin and Tara Boland, and written by Nessah Muthy, Small Wonders celebrates the relationships we have with our elders.  Suitable for children (aged 5-11) and their families, previews start on Saturday 2nd June.

Inside Nanny Lacey’s flat are a collection of miniatures. These homemade creations capture the adventures she’s shared with her daughter Bella over the years. Like 3D photographs, they’re treasured moments of time and each one tells a different story.

As Nanny Lacey has gotten older she’s started to forget things. Change is on the horizon and she’ll soon move into a care home. Before she goes, there is one final miniature to share, and story to be told.

In this magical, interactive experience for children aged 5-11 years and their families, Bella invites you to join Nanny Lacey in her flat in Tottenham and explore the worlds she has created. 

Conceived by Punchdrunk, Small Wonders is inspired by the stories and dreams of the Tottenham UpLIFTers: a five-year artistic partnership with two Tottenham schools (Duke’s Aldridge Academy and The Vale School), LIFT and a LIFT commission, conceived and co-directed by Darren O’ Donnell and Alice Fleming.

Performances are also available for school groups. For more information contact the Bernie Grant Box Office on 020 8365 5450.

Through the work of its Enrichment department, over the past decade Punchdrunk has taken their pioneering approach to theatre into communities, creating experiences for children, young people and care homes.
