Theatre Alibi present

I Believe in Unicorns

For 5-11 year olds
from the book by Michael Morpurgo Adapted by Daniel Jamieson

Tomas didn’t like books or stories. Stories were just for “Little Snotties”. He was happier clambering in the mountains like a goat or tobogganing with his Dad. That was until the Unicorn Lady came to town and reeled him in with her irresistible magic tales. But then disaster struck and put everything that mattered most in Tomas’s life in terrible danger….I Believe in Unicorns is a spellbinding and moving story by one of our greatest storytellers.

Theatre Alibi last worked with Michael Morpurgo on Why the Whales Came which ran in the West End to great critical acclaim:

“An evening of thrilling theatre” ????

“This is not just a great piece of children’s theatre, it is a great piece of theatre full stop.” ????

A Theatre Alibi & Exeter Phoenix Co-production
