So excited for this. I've loved the short story ever since I bought it for eighty pence from a bargain bin on holiday. This one is a proper adaptation. We worked a long time on the themes, characters, and tone of the original and found that so many of them lend themselves to a children's production. Absurd, unsettling and hilarious, not to mention the fact the kids bring a level you can never write on the page. This is also bigger than we've ever gone. Full-length script, original songs, all at Mulberry's brand new theatre. The fight for Head Kid has never been so tense.
