‘A fine example of what movement-based theatre can achieve’
‘There are moments of sharp grief in this piece, but it is also wonderfully funny…touching without plunging into sentimentality’
‘A triumph indeed.‘
When my Dad died…I think he turned into a bell. On the moon. But a really high bell, so high nobody but dogs can hear it
Life for Tony is confusing enough with a new sister on the way. Josie has a life threatening illness. Whilst on a family holiday to France their chance meeting changes everything.
Heralded for it’s deft mix of comedic and tragic aspects, and the delicate way it explores death, Little Victories was a co-production between Trestle Theatre Company and Quicksilver Theatre for Children. After a sell-out UK tour, two runs in children’s festivals across the pond and 20 years on, Little Victories remains a powerful insight into the trials of children in a very grown up world.
