Dust

Written by acclaimed award-winning children’s author Laura Dockrill, Dust uses exciting puppetry and exquisite poetic language to explore a heartfelt story about love, loss, identity and memory. With haunting music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this striking and emotional new play is a joyous reminder about just how playful the world can be. 

A Half Moon and Z-arts co-production for ages 4-9.

What Once Was Ours

Created against the background of Brexit in 2017, this hard-hitting production for teenagers is now being presented online. Developed in consultation with young people across the country, What Once Was Ours uses their direct words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family and asks why we’ve become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.

A Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production for ages 13+.
