Best Bits

'STOP LEANING BACK ON YOUR CHAIR!' Are the same six words, in the same particular order, that Gus is told every day from his teacher, his Dad and granny but NEVER EVER hears. Until one day, something rather extraordinary happens…

This cautionary tale explores all the curiously obscure, brilliant and bizarre dreams, thoughts, ideas and fears inside a brain and how one little boy takes those wonderful things for granted. 

  • Butterfly Brain is a wild explosion of colour, sound, and the imagination. 
  • An exhilarating flight of fantasy and magic written by Laura Dockrill with music composed by Kerry Andrew
  • An interactive concert for families with children aged 7 plus

A note about the content from writer Laura Dockrill:

'I myself am a scaredy cat, so the below is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of… Although ‘Butterfly Brain’ is a story written for young people please note it is rather gory and scary in places and also a little sad.

If you or your young people are sensitive to gore and general grossness then please feel free to relax in the lobby away from the content with a pair of fluffy earmuffs* and talk to the person at box office about the universe, your hopes and dreams or cool stuff on TV. Or pop downstairs for a soothing hot chocolate where you can settle your faint heart whilst the show takes place.'

*please note fluffy ear muffs, regrettably, not supplied
