Three youngsters run away from their children’s home and sail down the River Tyne on a makeshift raft. Stuck on the mudflats, they meet a strange girl who lives with an old man, Grampa. The girl has a secret only Grampa knows …. and he’s not telling.
Adapted for the stage by internationally acclaimed children’s author David Almond (Skellig), Heaven Eyes is a poetic but gritty story about young people trying to find their way in the world. Mysterious, heartbreaking and humorous in equal measure, this story will touch the depth of your soul.
Théâtre Sans Frontières brings its own inimitable style of storytelling to this spellbinding and other-worldly tale.
