If you think theatre for 2 year-olds is impossible, think again.

Shadow Play is a new show designed especially for children aged between 2 and 6. Four performers enter a pristine empty space and proceed to make mischief - bursting through paper walls, going wild with paint and dancing with shadows.

The show is inspired by the way that children play and explore the world around them, and there is a lot of dance, mime, and live music on wonderfully weird instruments to keep them entertained.

The play is produced by the Travelling Light theatre company and is going on a 34-venue tour across the country that will culminate in an eleven-day run at the Unicorn Theatre.

Travelling Light are a Brighton-based company that have been producing theatre for young people for the last 23 years. Their performance style is highly physical, visual and musical and their past hits include Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me, Clown and Cloudland. They tour nationally and internationally to places as faraway as Korea and Romania.

For ages 2-6.
