The Lost Things

A boy falls and finds himself in a dark and terrifying new world. It’s a world of lost things: car keys, wedding rings and a mysterious girl who is building an amazing machine. Performed in a unique dome structure, The Lost Things is about losing things and finding things you didn’t even know you were looking for.

This is a dark fairy-tale set in a fantastical world, where nothing is quite as it seems. Multi-award-winners Tortoise in a Nutshell (Fisk, Feral) return with a critically acclaimed production for everyone aged nine and over, co-created with writer Oliver Emanuel (Titus, Flight).
