I Believe in Unicorns

An enchanting tale from the author of War Horse

14 - 18 Feb

Main Stage Ages
6 - 12

By Michael Morpurgo

An enchanting tale about the power of books and one boy’s bravery.

Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady in his local library, a place where the books hold more than stories within their pages…

We challenge you not to believe in unicorns as we join Tomas’ interactive spellbinding journey.

“A glorious example of the magic of storytelling… I loved it” Michael Morpurgo

Running Time: 60 minutes (no interval)

I Believe in Unicorns also includes a ‘book swap’, for which audience members are invited to bring along a favourite children’s book (for ages 6 and upwards) to help form part of the stage set at the beginning of the show. At the end the children are invited to swap their book for another one and so have a new story ‘from the library’ to take home with them.
