A lonely old man lives in a dreary junkyard, full of other people’s broken and unwanted junk. He dreams that one day his world will be full of life, colour and sound. His wish is about to come true…
An uplifting, humorous and touching show, full of visual invention, puppetry and live music…with mechanical birds, a wind-up circus and exotic animals. Based on the book by Helen Ward – illustrated by Wayne Anderson and published by Templar – this production uses a rich, wordless visual language and style.
