Event description

Description

Mortal Fools present

Melva

Written by Danielle Burn
​Produced by Mortal Fools

"Brave isn't how you feel, it's what you do"

MELVA tells the story of a 10-year-old girl whose struggles with anxiety, or 'worrits' as she knows them, keep her from leaving the house. Her Grandpa has grown so worried about her that he fakes his own disappearance in the hope that it will compel Melva to leave the house and overcome her ‘bad worrits’. What follows is a funny and poignant adventure for them both, where each learn how their ‘worrits’ affect them and new ways to tackle them separately and together.

Do you ever have worrits? You know - that uncontrollable churning in the pit of your tummy like you have 341 worms squirming about inside it? Well, Melva Mapletree has them too, and right now they’re so big and squirming that they’re stopping her from even leaving the house. But then, one night, something happens which changes her world forever.

MELVA is for children aged 7-11, their teachers and their families. It's a boisterous, mischievous and funny story of one girl’s adventure to find out what she’s really capable of.


£8 adult, £6 child


Audience quotes

Young Audiences:

“I learned that being afraid of something doesn't mean you can't do it"

“It was very funny and made me understand more about anxiety”

Adults:

“As a sufferer of anxiety and a worrier from a very young age, I can't tell you how important the show is for young (and old) audiences! Heart-warming, magical, important story-telling.”

“One of the most perfect productions I have had the privilege to see. A powerful and emotive subject to tackle. Emotional, inspirational and thought-provoking”
