Rediscover the unbridled imagination of childhood in HookHitch's new family-friendly World War I story, featuring folk music and puppetry. With their father in peril at the Front, the Connor children turn inside themselves for comfort and distraction from reality. Their imaginary kingdom comes to life with music and hand-carved puppets as they set sail on impossible adventures. Accompanied by the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson's A Childs Garden of Verses, set to an enchanting folk score. 'HookHitch grab their audiences and dont let go' ★★★★ (Festival Journal). ★★★★ (
