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

The creators of The Young King bring Erich Kästner’s 1929 coming of age novella to life in this must-see award-winning production.

Never underestimate the determination of a child. Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city but something valuable is stolen. When a group of resourceful children rally together, the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target.

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.

Suitable for: Ages 8+ and their families

Awards:
Winner – Helpmann Award – 2018
