Tell Tale Hearts

Unlock the gift of imagination…

We are professional story makers based in South Yorkshire with international appeal. Most of our stories are made to be shared in theatres, libraries, schools, nurseries, community venues and festivals performed by professional theatre artists. Some require plenty of young participants to create the story as Youth Theatre Projects, while others are written and shared as printed books…

…But all of our stories are made for children (and their families) by listening to children’s voices as part of our storymaking journey. It keeps us in touch with the extraordinary possibilities of seeing things with your heart.

If you’d like to book one of our shows, please check out the Shows Section to see what’s currently available. If you’d like to book one of our workshops, please check out the Schools Section. Alternatively please feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions.
