2 Nov 2018 (Past)
The Ark welcomes Bombinate Theatre with this engaging and heartwarming show for ages 8+ this midterm.
‘Imagine this: you’re walking up a mountain, through a forest of pine trees, and you’re trying to find your Dad. He’s been taken by a monster.’ Meet Robin, a ten-year-old boy travelling through the magical woodland of his father’s storybook. A tale which is as true as it is untrue.
Half dark and half light.
Mid-Term 1-3 Nov – 2pm
There will be a touch tour for audience members who are blind or visually impaired on Fri 2 Nov @ 1.15pm. The tour is free if you purchase tickets for the 2pm show.
