I Believe In Unicorns

Based on the book by Michael Morpurgo.

Adapted by Daniel Jamieson. For 5 to 11 year olds.

“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.

Table Mates

A new play by Daniel Jamieson

Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.

They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.

For 5–11 Year Olds | Touring Autumn 2018
