Eddie and the Slumber Sisters

An interactive, heart-warming show filled with music, magic, and imagination that explores grief through the eyes of a child.

Recommended for all dreamers aged eight and above.

Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job is to monitor our dreams and make sure our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of musical remedies, they create dreams that will help us through difficult times.

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day, but at night Eddie’s dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic – and sometimes terrifying! It’s been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie’s grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it’s time to intervene.

Is it bad?
Yes
Do we need to step in?
I think so
What shall we bring…
A red kite, a seaside scene, sunshine from handbag No 4 and a graveyard
Must we bring the graveyard?
Of course, without that she’ll never get any better…
