A blanket fort. A hairy Oph. A boy left alone.
A show for children and kiddults alike.
Mr Boy has lost his twin brother. Pursued by "Them", he sets off on a quest to find him with the aid of new friends and in the face of inescapable opposition. Using puppetry and mask as well as the mother-of-all blanket forts, HalfWorld is an immersive celebration of child logic and the restorative power of the imagination.

"This play is like a dream. Lots of weird things happen"
- Time Out Magazine
"...humble, and unpretentious and tender and offbeat..."
"...like if Where the Wild Things Are met Monty Python and then watched The Labyrinth just the right amount of times."
