A duck strikes up an unlikely friendship with Death. Simple, unusual, warm and witty. The superb use of mime, magic and puppets, allows the play to deal with a difficult subject in a way that is elegant, straightforward, and thought-provoking.

Based on the internationally celebrated book by Wolf Erlbruch; Duck, Death and the Tulip will intrigue and enchant the smallest child to the oldest grownup.

Winner of An Outstanding Theatre Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Duck Death and the Tulip is a strangely heartwarming story.
