Welcome to a tale of squabbles, scuffles…and buttons!

George grows grapes.  Bessie grows cabbages.  One loves the sun.  One loves the rain.

A petty squabble grows and grows and grows into…the war of the buttons!

In a silly and wonderful tale, buttons and friendships are lost and won, games are played, and audiences young and old can rediscover their inner child!

Told through an energetic mix of music, puppetry, clowning, movement and sign language, The War of the Buttons distinctive non-verbal vocabulary creates a show accessible to deaf, hearing and international audiences.

The War of the Buttons is based on the children’s book ‘La Guerre des Boutons’ written by French author Louis Pergaud.
