Kneehigh bring their full arsenal of live music, puppetry, dance and visual hi jinx to this brand new adaptation of the original novel by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse). Directed by Emma Rice, (now the Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe) 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips is the true story of British townsfolk and the African American soldiers sent to rehearse the Normandy invasion from their shores. Seen through the eyes of a little girl and her beloved cat, 946 overturns everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings.
Suitable for ages 7+
