Based on the novel by internationally renowned 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, heart-breaking and humourous in equal measure, this story will touch the depth of your soul.
Three orphaned teenagers 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.
Théâtre Sans Frontières brings its own inimitable style of story-telling to this spellbinding and other-worldly tale. Featuring a UK and Swedish cast, original music and video.
Recommended by the British Theatre Guide as one of the Best Family Shows in the North East of 2014.
Suitable for ages 9+
