"This show is both uproariously funny and definitely heart-warming... - a testament to both the original story by Mem Fox and the work of Little Dog Barking in their adaptation." - Finnian Nacey, Art Murmurs

A book that is so well-loved by children is now a magical stage play that deals powerfully with childhood and age, with memory and with relationships. The magic of storytelling and puppetry, make this play a wonderful work for both adults and children.

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is just four years old and he lives next door to a rest home for old people. He knows all the residents very well, but his favourite person is Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper because she has four names, just as he does.

Suitable for ages up to 10 years old and their companions.

Bookings are available for early learning centres, and school holiday group bookings as well as general public.

The theatre company's work has not only been recognised nationally but also internationally, winning awards for Best Drama at The 2nd Nanchong International Puppet Art Week - China - June 2017; Best Foreign Drama at the 2014 Asian Pacific Puppet Festival in China; an Outstanding Theatre Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and being selected to tour to Australia, Japan, Korea and China in 2016 and 2017.
