About the Show
Something monstrous is keeping Emily Brown awake…
From the creators of Room on the Broom and Snail and the Whale comes the heart-warming stage show Emily Brown and the Thing, based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (writer of How to Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton.
One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to the Dark and Scary Wood, to the Whirling Wastes and beyond to find the Thing’s cuddly, bedtime milk and medicine… But nothing seems to help him settle.
What’s really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep?
