Tortoise In A Nutshell: The Lost Things

Theatre |
30th March 2019

Starts 2 and 4pm | Tickets £9.50 U16 £7.50 | Theatre

A boy falls and finds himself in a dark and terrifying new world. It’s a world of lost things: car keys, wedding rings, dads, and a mysterious girl who is building an amazing machine.

Performed in a unique dome structure, The Lost Things is about losing things and finding things you didn’t even know you were looking for; a dark fairy-tale set in a fantastical world, where nothing is quite as it seems. For ages 9+.

The Lost Things won a Kotorski Festival Award for Design at the 2017 Kotorski Festival in Montenegro.

Created by award winning theatre company, Tortoise in a Nutshell and writer, Oliver Emanuel (DragonTitusThe Day I swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish), The Lost Things was originally commissioned by Imaginate for their 2015 international festival of theatre and dance for young audiences.

Since that time the production has toured extensively throughout the UK to theatres, community halls and primary schools.

‘Exquisite, encompassing piece of theatre’ Edinburgh Guide

‘Dramatically powerful and visually striking. The Lost Things is the kind of puppet-play that excels in telling bitter-sweet flesh-and-blood stories.’ The Herald
