The Bookbinder – a magical one man show – 30 June - 23 July 2015

Is it a trick of the light or masterful storytelling that creates the magic in The Bookbinder?

Written and performed by Ralph McCubbin Howell and directed by Hannah Smith, The Bookbinder uses puppetry and props, light, shadow and the imagination to create a performance that has captivated the major centres in Australia and New Zealand.

‘They say you can get lost in a good book, but it is worse getting lost in a bad one…” An old man sits down to read a tale of an apprentice. As he speaks, the story spills from the pages and in to the bindery. Instead of a vast spectacle, the audience enjoys the magic of a pop-up book, finding an eagle in the shadows created by a lamp and an ocean hiding in a jug of water.

“We loved the idea of doing something intimate and personally engaging – like the experience you have when you actually read a book,” Hannah Smith says.

This pocket sized production has won Best Theatre and Best in Fringe at the NZ Fringe Awards, an International Excellence award at the Sydney Fringe and most recently the BDO Children’s Theatre award at the Fringe World in Perth. The Bookbinder is suitable for everyone from the age of eight to eighty.
