Sunflowers and Sheds Autumn 2020 School's Tour
With Frank’s family so far away, he passes the time on his beloved allotment. When the plot next door becomes empty, he really looks forward to meeting his new neighbour. Until she arrives that is!
Isabella is as lively as her cheeky chickens and soon disrupts Frank’s peaceful routine. She grows flowers, he grows vegetables. She loves to sing and chat and he loves nothing more than a quiet cup of tea. Things come to a head when Frank discovers Isabella in his shed, but he misunderstands the reason why.
Staged on lovingly recreated life-size allotments, this story about a lonely old man and a breezy Eastern European girl helps us discover that, with the breaking down of barriers, friendship can grow in the most unlikely conditions.
Our productions place children and young people’s wellbeing and empowerment at their centre, enhancing the pupils' understanding of themselves, their relationships with others and the world around them.
Our productions are fully supported by:
We offer a range of workshop models allowing pupils to explore the themes of the play and interact with the actors or specialist workers using dynamic, active learning techniques.
We create imaginative and memorable resource materials to accompany productions. These further enhance the creative and learning opportunities initiated by the performance and provide additional stimulating opportunities for young people to interact with the performance long after our visit.
