The Way Back Home
A Christmas show based on the best-selling book by Oliver Jeffers, specially made for children 7 and under. Created by acclaimed children’s theatre company Big Wooden Horse who brought us the hit shows Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and The Night Before Christmas, with original music produced by the composers of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom. The Way Back Home is perfect for families, schools, nurseries and playgroups.
Once there was a boy
who, one day, found himself
stuck on the moon
and he was not alone…
“Well paced and full of the variety a very young audience needs” The Stage
“The young audience loved every moment, I strongly recommend this play to any family” Halifax Courier
One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard. He doesn’t remember leaving it there, but he decides to take it out for a go right away! 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 really be friends? Will they find their Way Back Home???
