Taking Flight

Studio Theatre
Sunday 30 September 2018

Taking Flight chronicles the adventures of a young person who goes on an adventurous international journey away from home. Armed with only a backpack of favourite items, the child’s most treasured possessions help in some surprising and creative ways, to overcome many barriers along the way.

The story intriguingly and inventively is told via the use of minimal storytelling, a pen, a pad of paper and a global soundtrack, mapping the journey, evoking different landscapes and endowing its audience with a profound sense of what it is to be human and to have a place to call ‘home.’  

"A little play with big themes"

"It’s a gem…it tells the story in the most creative, touching and uplifting way imagineable. It left us awestruck."
