Rise of the Shadow Stealers

Fletcher and Scoop go to a school for Story Characters. The trouble is, they can’t remember their own beginnings. As they search for their missing memories, they become entangled in the tale of the mysterious Storyteller, embarking on a quest that leads them through the shadow to the heart of creation itself.

This remarkable new adaptation for family audiences, based on the original book by Knaresborough-based author Daniel Ingram-Brown, explores themes of identity and home. Playful and sensory, using puppetry, music and mime, this adventure story will enthrall audiences of all ages.
