From the makers of The Bookbinder comes a lo-fi wi-fi fable. It’s 1998. Otto is twelve but online he’s thirteen and he’s pretty sure he gets away with it. He lives in an old wooden two-story house with his mum, dad, and sister, a chain-smoking Icelandic granny, and an ancient malevolent tröll that’s living in the wall… It combines storytelling, music, and puppetry into an uncanny tale from the twitchy edges of the digital age.
For adults and older children (12+).
Trick of the Light is an award-winning theatre company from Wellington, New Zealand, founded by Hannah Smith and Ralph McCubbin Howell. We like to make theatre that is playful, inventive, thought-provoking, and that speaks to the here and now. Our previous shows have ranged from intelligent cross-over works for adults and older children to biting political satire, but are unified by their attention to narrative, integrated visual design, and belief that theatre should resonate with the wider world.
