EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES
By Erich Kästner, adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Enter the world of adventure with the classic detective novel live on stage.

Told in an intimate theatrical style by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score, Emil and the Detectives is sure to intrigue and delight audiences ages 8+ and their families.

★★★★★ “A remarkable show…for anyone who enjoys a good old-fashioned story, told with warmth, heart and sheer inventive skill.” – The Skinny, Edinburgh

Suitable for ages 8+ and their families
