One wintery evening Tyltyl wakes to find a hump-back figure in his bedroom. She is obviously a fairy. Tyltyl must find the bluebird that makes people happy. And he must do so before morning. Tyltyl doesn’t know about bluebirds, or where he might find one but joined by his faithful pets the search begins…

Lightbox Theatre presents Maurice Maeterlinck’s classic fairy-tale about happiness, perception and seeing the extraordinary in our everyday. Directed by Anna Marsland (resident director of Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time) this is a visually charming and magical show for young people aged 4-11 years and their families.

The Blue Bird is a 60-minute family show that uses a cast of four actor-musicians to create the magic and mystery of a young child’s quest into strange, fantastical and dangerous worlds to find the blue bird of happiness.

Director: Anna Marsland
Designer: Sammy Dowson
