The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark

This magical musical shadow-puppet adaptation of Jill Tomlinson’s popular book by Clockworth Moth will delight and captivate audiences of all ages.

Plop isn’t like other Barn Owls: he is afraid of the dark. With his parents’ support he embarks on a number of charming and funny encounters with those who love night-time – a Scout, a little girl, an artist, an astronomer and Orion the black cat. Brimming with magic and atmosphere, this is a love-letter to the wonder of nature. An intricate and mesmerising shadow-puppet show, with live narration and musicians.
