We offer a range of discounts and concessions to enable everyone to enjoy an affordable visit to the Festival and King's Theatres.

A man and a woman, an old record player, a washing line and a large paper bag filled with wonderful things. Two very different people trying to fit together.

As clothes emerge from the bag, they take on different roles, different outfits and test their limits. They tease each other as they dance in and out of jackets, trousers and dresses, discovering new possibilities for play and transformation along the way.

The two opera-trained performers create a tender and enigmatic atmosphere, accompanying their play with beautiful singing from Henry Purcell’s baroque opera The Fairy Queen.

An ideal first experience of live theatre, full of humour and imagination.

“Dancing and teasing, exploring and imitating things – this show is born out of a child’s environment” Rheinische Post
