Need a little help
A Tangled Feet and Half Moon co-production for 2-7s.
A moving and uplifting show inspired by the experience of young carers for ages 2 – 7
Joe and Ella are a great team – they make each other laugh, help each other out and tackle all the chores their busy lives throw at them. But one morning things begin to change when Joe gets all tangled up and Ella has to do things alone. What will Ella do now? Will she be able to continue as before, or will it all get too much? If only she had a little help…
Based on the experiences of young carers, the piece explores what it means to look after someone else when you are young. In a uniquely designed immersive space, the young audience will help the performers look after each other, stepping into the shoes of young carers.
Need a Little Help is a deeply moving and joyfully uplifting piece of interactive and physical theatre from award winning ensemble Tangled Feet, working in partnership with children’s theatre specialists, Half Moon.
This is a reworked version of the production that toured nationally in 2015, reconfigured to be performed in non-traditional venues including community, libraries and school settings. Need a Little Help has been adapted for early years settings through Hopper with the support of Take Art, Surrey Arts, China Plate, Arts Partnership Surrey, ACE and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Performance lasts for 40 minutes followed by an informal play session.
