Shona Reppe, UK
The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean | The Ark | Oct 9 – 12
The clues are in the pages of The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean.
Everything is flat, pressed, squished. A dusty, musty smell mixes with the scent of old lavender and a string lifts a flap to reveal a hidden door.
Slowly, page-by-page, the scrapbook becomes the window into a secret world and a curious life unfolds before us. But who was Josephine Bean?
Shona Reppe, creator of the much-loved Potato Needs a Bath (Dublin Theatre Festival 2012), makes a welcome return to Family Season with The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean, winner of the 2012 Theatre Award UK for Best Show for Children and Young People.
