Inside Out

It’s bedtime! But instead of getting ready for bed, two siblings use their imaginations to turn their room into a wonderland of mess!

While playing dress-up that leads to a mountain top rescue, the older brother loses his special hat and so begins an adventure to find it! After some great new encounters where a shirt becomes a fantastical creature and a sock dance rocks the wardrobe, they both discover the joy of turning things inside out.

Performances include a “free play” session at the end of the show, allowing the children to dress up & invent their own clothing adventures with props from the show.

A co-production between Imagination Stage (USA) and Tell Tale Hearts (UK)

Audience Feedback

"This co-production from Tell Tale Hearts and Imagination Stage (USA) is uniquely interactive, putting the ‘play’ in plays.... a wonderful welcome to theatre."
