A woman sits on a train. As it rocks her through the countryside she feels the kicks of her baby in her tummy. She starts to eat an apple and finds that, strangely, the seeds inside have already started to sprout. Then she throws the core out of the window. Whoosh. A jolt and the baby is on its way. John is born. And that night, out by the railway, an apple tree starts to grow.
Apple John is about about growing up, finding your roots and adding rings to the trunk.
Bursting with original live music, playfulness and puppetry, Apple John delights in every moment without the need to utter a single word.
