We are delighted to announce the cast for Shō and the Demons of the Deep.

Itxaso Moreno, Christina Strachan and Rebecca Wilkie take on all the characters in Zoe Bullock (writer) and Shilpa T-Hyland’s (director) visual adventure story about overcoming fear, and how the actions of one generation can affect the next.

The production is inspired by the powerful picture book of the same name by Annouchka Gravel Galouchko.

Sho’s story unfolds through a magical mix of movement, music and miniature worlds, taking the audience from big cities to the ocean floor on a very big adventure!

Shō and the Demons of the Deep is a timely new production for younger audiences aged 8 and over tours across Scotland in April to June 2024.

A Independent Arts Projects (IAP) production, in association with National Theatre of Scotland.

Zoe Bullock, writer, said,

"Shō and the Demons of the Deep is a hopeful, joyous show about how we can work together to confront what scares us. It's based on a beautiful picture book, and we've worked hard to do that justice and make something magical. Creating it with a wonderful team and the support of the NTS has been an absolute pleasure, and I can't wait to share the story with people across Scotland."

The production was supported through a National Theatre of Scotland Develop Residency in 2022.
