Eileen Browne’s hugely popular children’s story, Handa’s Surprise, is returning to the egg theatre in Bath on Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 May after previous sell-out visits.
Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village. Handa is taking seven delicious fruits as a surprise – but seven different animals have seven very different ideas! Could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit?
Physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create a magical production with some audience participation – come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!
Since it was first published in 1995, Eileen Browne’s book has gone on to become a modern children’s classic, earning praise as one of the best culturally diverse picture-books in the UK. Little Angel Theatre’s lively adaptation has been a huge hit across the country since it was first performed in 2012.
Tickets are on sale from the egg reception on 01225 823409, the Theatre Royal Box Office on 01225 448844 and online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk
