Based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton comes Tall Stories’ highly acclaimed production of Emily Brown and the Thing, the perfect treat for all the family this Christmas.
One winter’s evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to the Dark and Scary Wood, the Whirling Wastes and beyond, to find the Thing’s cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine… but nothing seems to help him settle.
What’s really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep? Find out in this magical, musical show by the company that brought you The Snow Dragon in the Patrick Studio last Christmas. Catch the show here this the festive season before it transfers to New York and embarks on a North American tour in 2019.
Presented in association with Birmingham Hippodrome.
