Beastie: Lone Twin

Family Season at The Ark: Oct 2 - Oct 6

"…we’ve never seen one of these fragile, beautiful performances that wasn’t an outright winner"  The Guardian


In cities and towns across the country people have been seeing a mysterious creature. Some say they’ve seen it on the bus. One boy said it eats shoes! But one thing is for certain – nobody knows what it is...

Beastie is a magical adventure for children inspired by the imagination of young explorers. In a dynamic performance the audience share a jaw-dropping secret and take charge as they create their own stories and explore their surroundings hand-in-hand with a very special new friend. The result is a playful, active and engaging experience for small groups of children, and one big surprise for adults!

Under the direction of acclaimed theatre-makers and children’s television writers Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters, Lone Twin is known for creating projects that entertain and inspire hope.

If you come face-to-face with Beastie, what will you do?
