THE CURIOUS SCRAPBOOK OF JOSEPHINE BEAN
"A truly sensory and thought-provoking piece –
a great piece of children’s theatre that is not just for children"
Everything is flat, pressed, squished.
A dusty, musty smell mixes with the scent of old lavender and a string lifts a flap to reveal a hidden door.
Slowly, page-by-page, the scrapbook becomes the window into a secret world and a curious life unfolds

"This is theatre of the imagination, where the book’s pop-up nature, advent calendaresque pockets delivering up secrets,, and clever use of video and soundscape help drive the narrative. One that holds the attention throughout to great effect, for both kids and adults alike." Alan Chadwick, STV
"a highly original, beautifully delicate and thoroughly engaging piece of children's theatre" The Sunday Herald
