Come and join us for this light-hearted, whimsical adventure into the story before the story!

Geppetto is the story of a lonely old man, grieving the loss of his wife and isolated from the world outside his workshop. He spends his days pottering in his repair shop, half-heartedly fixing broken things, never quite getting to the bottom of the pile of these once loved but now discarded items. His small and solitary life is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a mysterious visitor that brings his broken things to life; a lamp causes havoc, a radio bursts into song, and a Hoover is determined to cause trouble. Geppetto is slowly pulled out of his lonely existence and into a world full of hope and opportunity. He’s finally able to move through life no longer weighed down by loss. As we leave him, the mysterious visitor has one last gift to bestow – one story’s end is just another story’s beginning.

Geppetto is a non-verbal production, featuring physical comedy, puppetry and music. This fun and hilarious new production is suitable for children aged 6yrs+.


This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
