Written by award-winning duo Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton, the tale of little Emily Brown and her bedtime adventures are being retold through beautiful puppetry, original music and comedy.

One evening, Emily and her rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window and despite all their efforts, The Thing just won't sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley go to the Dark and Scary Wood and the Whirling Wastes and beyond to find the Thing’s bedtime milk and medicine – but nothing seems to work. 

The production touches on themes of belonging, fear, bravery and adventure – all in an entertaining and enlightening way that is suitable for all ages.  

What is truly troubling the Thing and will anyone ever get to sleep?
