SPIKE by Little Wing Puppets
2 March 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am$10
A baby echidna in search of where he belongs.
Combining shadow puppetry and physical comedy Spike is an interactive experience for a family audience. Spike is the story of an echidna, who is stolen from his nest, and hatches from his egg far away from home. A young girl finds him. She is playing alone in the bush because she is being bullied by other children. He has no spikes yet and she doesn’t know what kind of creature he is. She tries to work out where he comes from, but accidently puts him in dangerous situations – in the nest of a crocodile, an emu and a turtle. He feels frightened, rejected, alone. As the story unfolds, she helps him to discover where he belongs, and he helps her to find her own “spikes” and stand up to the bullies. Starring Jenny Ellis. Spike was written in collaboration with acclaimed author Anne Brooksbank.
