Monday’s Child, written by award-winning Brendan Murray (Writer’s Guild of Great Britain, Best Children’s Play 2012), tells a simple poetic story of the unique bond between a grandmother and a child. We share the delights and surprises of the respective stages of their lives: discoveries, memories, imaginings…

Grandma can’t remember, but does remember to visit every week and play until bedtime. Together, they love to sing and dress up and are often oblivious of the challenges that the real world throws at them.

At just five years old, the child delights in discovering her world. She revels in the days with her eccentric Grandma and loves learning new things – how to count, the different colours and the simplicities of abc and 123.

With live music and dance, this imaginative dream-like yet funny story explores how we learn, grow old and cope with new challenges.

Join us for a funny, tender exploration of worlds old and new.

With its magical mix of music, movement and beautiful design, Monday’s Child has been made especially for children aged 3-7 years and their families.

“Monday’s Child, is an exquisite exploration of friendship, play and memory across the generations. Consequently, what results is a piece that manages to capture the innocence and simple joy of play but still addresses some much more profound questions about life in a deeply moving and poetic way. Erika Pool and Josie Cerise are excellent.”  WHATSONSTAGE ?????
