Two children are in a boat.
They play. They laugh. They argue.
They dream of catching a fish so big it will capsize the boat. Of encountering a mermaid who will sing them the most beautiful melodies. Of lassoing a whale who will pull them to shore, to a new land of thick green grass and endless blue skies. A safe land.
Adrift is a brand new play from Beverley Hancock-Smith, developed by acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre, created in partnership with St. Bernard’s RC Primary School.
Adrift brings together the celebrated company behind the critically acclaimed STATIk and Happily Ever After with international mime and physical theatre artists Vini Carvalho (Brazil) and Carmen Arquelladas (Spain), original music from Patrick Dineen (Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf, Happily Ever After) and enchanting design from Lois Maskell (The Mighty Boosh).
Told with tenderness, humour and ATT’s signature visual storytelling, Adrift is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.
