Based on the book by Michael Morpurgo.

Adapted by Daniel Jamieson. For 5+

“Theatre Alibi have created a belter of a show in their innovative reworking of Morpurgo’s much loved children’s book I Believe in Unicorns. This is without a doubt, children’s theatre of the highest quality.” THE PUBLIC REVIEWS ****

Theatre Alibi’s I Believe in Unicorns toured school in 2013 and toured national and internationally in 2015. This beautiful piece of Storytelling is now being brought back to life for the new intakes of school children across the South West in Autumn 2019.

Tomas didn’t like books or stories. Stories were just for “Little Snotties”. He was happier clambering in the mountains like a goat or tobogganing with his Dad. That was until the Unicorn Lady came to town and reeled him in with her irresistible magic tales. But then disaster struck and put everything that mattered most in Tomas’s life in terrible danger... I Believe in Unicorns is a spellbinding and moving story by one of our greatest storytellers.
