We are very excited to welcome back acclaimed UK theatre company Big Wooden Horse for a very limited season. You may remember them for their wonderful and hilarious adaptations of Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus and How To Catch A Star.

 The Way Back Home is an inter-galactic tale about a little boy seeking adventure.

One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard. He flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and lands on the moon. He is frightened, lost and alone until a passing Martian lands there too! Who is the strange alien? Can they be friends? And how will they find their way back home?

Writer and director Adam Bampton-Smith said: “Oliver Jeffers’ fantastic picture book is perfect for adapting into a live stage version. The story of friendship between the boy and alien is one that everyone can relate to, coupled with those wonderful images that we have incorporated into the stage design. There is plenty of audience interaction and some great new music produced by the composers of The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom.”

You can catch The Way Back Home for a strictly limited engagement in the NEWLY RENOVATED Alliance Française Theatre at Sarkies Road from 12 to 20 September.
