I’ll Take You to Mrs Cole!

A Complicité Associates and Polka Theatre co-production

Running time: 60mins

I’ll Take You to Mrs Cole!   fuses original Ska music and animation to tell the story of Ashley, the child of a hard-working single mother from Barbados.  Exhausted by her child’s endless imagination, she threatens them with a visit to their terrifying neighbour whenever they misbehave. But one day Ashley is magnetically drawn to Mrs Cole’s door and taken into her noisy, messy, chaotic world…

A story of cultural differences, fear of the unknown and the power of a child’s imagination.
