You're never too old for hopes and dreams, there's always time for plans and schemes.

The Missing Light is an enchanting show for ages 7+ about hopes, dreams, togetherness and true friendship created by Mark Arends for Make Mend and Do.

When Warple moves into a small fishing village by the seaside, he discovers his neighbour, Hilda, looking out towards the horizon each night, searching for a glimpse of her long-lost husband. When loneliness, curiosity and a far-off flickering light brings them together, the two elderly friends embark on a surprising journey to reconcile their pasts and find what might lie within their futures.

See how the company use puppetry, film, music and live animation to create a story that is both moving and technically stunning in equal measures.
