Event description

Description

Handa’s Surprise, the much loved children’s book by Eileen Browne, is brought to life through puppetry, dance and song. Set in the warmth and colour of a Kenyan village, this beautiful production recounts the gentle story of a young girl, Handa, taking fruits in a basket to her friend Akeyo. On her colourful journey Handa encounters various mischievous animals who steal her fruit – a monkey, an ostrich, zebra, giraffe, elephant, antelope and a parrot. Will there be any fruit left for Akeyo at all?


This is a charming and funny show full of dance and rhythm, and features beautifully carved rod and hand puppets.

“A short, sunshiny little show with a delicious citrus finish.” Critics’ Choice Time Out

“Vibrant performers…singing and stomping in Swahili rhythms” Time Out

Handa’s Surprise offers a unique theatrical experience for young children. The audience are invited to sit on the floor around the staging allowing for an intimate and engaging performance. The children are encouraged to engage with the actors and puppets throughout the performance and to have a dance to the wonderful African music after the show!
