Family Season

When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: he flies into outer space!

Millions of miles from earth, the plane begins to sputter and quake. The boy must make a daring landing on the moon. But as it turns out, he is not alone up there...

Branar Téatar and Teater Refleksion have joined forces to produce The Way Back Home, based on the hugely successful book by Irish author Oliver Jeffers. Making its world premiere at the festival, this new show will combine puppetry, original music and the distinctive, evocative design of Teater Refleksion’s Mariann Aagaard to realise a beautiful and imaginative story on stage.
