Emily Brown and The Thing
Something MONSTROUS is keeping Emily Brown awake. One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley find a Thing crying outside their window. He has lost his cuddly and absolutely can’t get to sleep without it. Emily and Stanley bravely set off into the Dark and Scary Wood in search of the missing cuddly but on their return they find that the Thing can’t sleep without hot milk or his tickly cough medicine. The question is: what is really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep?
Parents and children the world over will recognise the bizarre excuses a child makes to keep the light on at bedtime. Emily Brown and the Thing demonstrates the importance of talking with children and finding out what is really going on in their complex imaginations.
Tall Stories (creators of The Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale stage shows) are delighted to bring to Brisbane their highly acclaimed production Emily Brown and the Thing, an imaginative adaptation of the much-loved book by the award-winning duo Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train Your Dragon) and Neal Layton.
