The Blue Bird

A show for 4-11 year olds and their families.

By Maurice Maeterlinck

One wintery evening Tyltyl wakes to find a hump-back figure in his bedroom. She is obviously a fairy. Tyltyl must find the bluebird that makes people happy. And he must do so before morning. Tyltyl doesn't know about bluebirds, or where he might find one but joined by his faithful pets the search begins...

Lightbox Theatre presents Maurice Maeterlinck’s classic fairy-tale about happiness, perception and seeing the extraordinary in our everyday. Directed by Anna Marsland (resident director of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time) this is a visually charming and magical show for young and old alike.
