“I’ve got that funny feeling again… it’s a good thing right?”

Three friends embark on an exciting adventure to chase their butterflies away. They cross new seas to uncharted lands, on a journey filled with discovery. The only trouble is they’re all a bit worried about it! During their voyage the group ride the waves, walk high bridges, skirt deep caves and climb to the sky, before reaching dry land braver than ever before.

Join our intrepid characters as they step into the unknown in an uplifting tale of friendship, courage and facing your fears, told using innovative staging, breathtaking physicality, touching humour and a specially commissioned musical score.

Butterflies is a co-production between award winning theatre ensemble Tangled Feet and Half Moon. It returns after sold out shows in 2017.

Audience feedback:

“Such an important subject to introduce to children and it was done beautifully.”
Audience Member

“Butterflies was received brilliantly. Teachers, parents and children commented on the high production level and were particularly impressed with the atmosphere created by the performers, lighting, and use of physical theatre. It was particularly interesting to see that the children were connected throughout. This play dealt with anxiety in a sensitive and kind way.”
