EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES
Never underestimate the determination of a child! Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen. But the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal?
Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom, Emil and the Detectives is based on Erich Kästner’s 1929 novella which is more than a ‘good romp’, it broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults story genre. Streetwise city kids, a hard-working single mother and Emil’s past brush with the law add grit and nuance to this satisfying tale.
How do we find our friends in the world? How do we work together to defeat tricksters?
In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, Emil and The Detectives is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score. Dark and light, intrigue and delight for audiences aged eight and upwards.
Win tickets to Emil and the Detectives. Play & Go have one Family Pass (2 adults + 2 children or 1 adult +3 children) to give away. Prize is valued at $85.
