Is it a bed? Or a boat? Or a giant slice of toast? For Naz and Iggy and their eight friends, their bed is a place where imagination can fill their tummies with tasty treats and take them to familiar warm places. Well, sometimes.

Join the boat-bed’s disparate crew as they dream up playful tales of pirates, misunderstood sharks and fishing trips that hook some unexpected catches. But what happens if the bed is not big enough to fit everyone in? How do they decide who gets to stay and who has to go?

This humorous and inventive new show celebrates the power of imaginary play and proves there’s always enough room to have fun, even when the world is at its most daunting.

Written by award-winning teenage fiction writer Steve Tasane (Child I, Blood Donors), Ten in the Bed sensitively explores the child refugee experience, where the power of invention offers an escape from reality. Framed by an evocative soundscape, it is the latest exhilarating production from Half Moon.

“A beautiful example of reimagining a difficult world through friendship and fun to make it a better place…. A positive tale with lots of smiles for a young audience… It has deep questions woven in, which definitely prompt further conversation.”

“We all loved the production; the topic and play was suitable for all ages. It was so interesting with the kids afterwards what everyone was most impressed about. Also as an adult, it was very emotional to watch.”
