Stories in the Dust is a two hander, playful, comedic show that addresses the issue of the climate crisis in an accessible and heartfelt way for young people.
The show unfolds from a shopping trolley, with the ever expanding set hidden within it, under it or attached to it and, of course, we ride around in it! The show includes puppetry and live music as we follow a quirky pair on their journey to find a place where food still grows and water flows – a place they’ve read about in an ancient book that they discovered on their travels. We hear the story of a great lion and see the pair’s rituals; developed over years of being only with one another. The show is a happy and joyous story that celebrates friendship, fresh food and hope, even when all hope seems lost.
The show is accompanied by an accessible education pack written by Professor Ian Williams, at the University of Southampton.
We additionally offer either craft (junk model puppet making) drama or tomato plant workshops (inspired by the show) as well as the opportunity for audience post show to ‘meet the puppets’ and see the set.
