Emily Brown and the Thing

Wed 25 Jun 2014

One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley find a Thing crying outside their window. He’s lost his cuddly and absolutely can’t get to sleep without it. Emily and Stanley bravely set off into the Dark and Scary Wood in search of the missing cuddly but on their return they find the Thing can’t sleep without hot milk either – or his tickly cough medicine... The daring duo head into the Whirling Wastes and even into the Whiny Witches’ Cavern in search of the lost things - but nothing seems to help. The question is: what is really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep?

Tall Stories (creators of the Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale stage shows) are proud to present their latest production: Emily Brown and the Thing, a highly inventive adaptation of the much-loved book by the award-winning duo Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train Your Dragon) and Neal Layton. Emily Brown and the Thing is one of a series of four books featuring the irrepressible Emily Brown.

Created in Tall Stories' unique style, and told with original music, beautiful puppetry, physical storytelling and lots of comedy, Emily Brown and the Thing is a fantastic tale of derring-do for children aged 3+ and their grownups!
