Starring four of the world’s most exciting circus artists, Metta Theatre bring the award-winning author Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward’s enchanting story spectacularly to life with circus, puppetry and song.

One magical midsummer’s night two sisters huddle together, fearful of what the darkness holds, when a mysterious winged creature appears and leads them on a moonlit adventure. Together they rescue cabbage juggling slugs, contortionist caterpillars, and a trio of acrobatic baby bats. But while the girls are busy being brave they overlook their winged friend, the King of Tiny Things, who needs their help most of all. Can they save him in time…

Based on the enchanting children’s story by Jeanne Willis.
