About the Show

Theatre-Rites first touring production, took its inspiration from a poem by Robert Graves, 'Through Nightmare"

The play tells a story of the hero’s mythical journey as a young child searching for his most precious possession, a star.

Studio theatres were transformed into a magical landscape with cones of different materials and textures. An atmospheric lighting design and original musical score added to the richness of this inspiring piece of theatre for the very young.

"It is both extremely simple and fantastically sophisticated, confirming what children understand better than adults - that the world is an astonishing, scary and magical place."
