Lily and the Albatross

Tall Tree TheatreThis event has now finished

A tale of wild weather, wild birds and wild ambitions

Far out in the wild and remote ocean is a small family on an old fishing boat. While the whims of the water control the daily routines of their little community, Lily has a different perspective and finds herself gazing into the sky, where birds swim weightlessly above her head before stealing the precious fish from the fishing nets. Lily longs for more; more freedom, more excitement and more time out at sea but these dreams are just out of reach.

Then one day a very special bird flies in from across the water, one that glides in the face of a storm, one that makes Lily question everything and gives her the nudge she needs to truly stretch her wings. When the whipping wind threatens their little world, the family must pull together, take a leap of faith and look beyond what they have always known to get themselves and the great old boat moving again.

Combining their unique style of puppetry, live music and stories that speak to all generations, Lily & the Albatross is a heartfelt tale about achieving the unachievable and never letting go of your childhood dreams. Suitable 5+
