If you loved the modern classic story by the award-winning duo Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train Your Dragon) and Neal Layton, you must see the live stage adaptation of Emily Brown and the Thing. Described as a brilliant show: funny, touching, and completely satisfying, Emily Brown and the Thing tells the all too familiar story of a little girl and her old grey rabbit Stanley who can’t get to sleep because there is a Thing crying outside her window. Turns out the Thing is upset as he has lost his cuddly and can’t sleep without it. Wanting to help, Emily Brown and Stanley set out into the woods to find the missing cuddly but when they get back, it turns out Thing can’t sleep without hot milk or tickly throat medicine either! Now Emily needs to find out what really is bothering the Thing so everyone can get to sleep.

The show has been created by Tall Stories, who were also responsible for the amazing stage shows The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and The Snail and the Whale, all popular children’s book brought to life on stage. Emily Brown stars a seasoned cast of talented performers and is directed by Olivia Jacobs.

Emily Brown and the Thing is a heart-warming adventure full of original songs, amazing puppetry, laughs and fun that is recommended for children aged 3 years and older. This will be one show you will not want to miss during the Christmas holiday period.
