Presented at the Bruce Mason Centre, this production is directed by Jodie Farrugia and performed by young circus professionals aged 10-18.
An ordinary boy, covered head-to-toe in safety gear, prepares to ride his bicycle. Then, out of nowhere, he is sucked back in time to the 1940s. There, in an abandoned junkyard, he meets a gang of kids wild at heart, whose boundless enthusiasm urges him to play as children once did: without inhibition and free from adult supervision.
Propelled by a cast of talented young performers, this vibrant take on childhood tumbles headfirst into a world of play and imagination through circus skills and acrobatics, beautiful shadow puppetry and a moving sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks and weren’t wrapped in cotton wool.
