About the Show
Ruby is seven… and three quarters. She is everything a little girl should be: brazen, hopeful and bright-eyed. But unlike most girls her age, Ruby is confined to a hospital bed.
Ruby may not believe in fairytales, but she certainly believes in wishes. When she is visited by Dot, a tongue-tied clown doctor, Ruby finds a way to use her greatest asset: her imagination. As the pair form an unlikely friendship, the sterile hospital room becomes a fantasy wonderland of mop monsters, pillow clouds and imaginary paper friend – a place where only a tip truck worth of chocolate mousse can crush the bedroom baddies!
Ruby’s Wish is a pocket-sized bundle of charm for children aged 7 and up. With exquisite puppetry, comedy, animation, beatboxing and clowning, this beautiful production proves there is no harm in believing.
