They say you can get lost in a good book. But it’s worse getting lost in a bad one…

From award-winning company Trick of the Light Theatre (The Road That Wasn't There) comes a story of mystery, magic and mayhem. Inspired by the haunting works of Chris Van Allsburg and Neil Gaiman, The Bookbinder weaves shadowplay, paper art, puppetry, and music into an inventive performance for curious children (8+) and adventurous adults…

Fresh from a sell out tour to Melbourne and Sydney, The Bookbinder comes to the Old Mill in Waikari for one night only at 6pm and 8pm on Saturday 8 November. Seats are limited so book early to make sure you don't miss out.

Written and Performed by Ralph McCubbin Howell
