From the creators of Monster/Clock, a new play for children 8+ and their families, Human Child.
Lelia is a bold child. She doesn’t eat her dinner. She never goes to bed when she’s told. Her parents say she’s a worry. Her teacher says she’s a pain. She’s the kid who stands on the table, she’s the kid who won’t wash her hands, she’s the kid who has lots of friends but everyone is in her head.
She’s the kid who, from the end of her garden, hears a song that takes her on a wondrous journey to a place where she’s understood.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand.
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
Inspired by changeling myths from Irish mythology and the poetry of WB Yeats, Human Child is a blazing adventure, fantasy story that mixes puppetry, comedy and live music.
This is Collapsing Horse Theatre Company’s follow up to last year’s hit Monster/Clock which was dubbed 'Best Children’s Theatre of 2012' by the Irish Times.
