The Hero Next Door

From the award winning author of The Boy At The Back Of The Class, Onjali Q. Raúf MBE (Sunday Times Bestseller, winner of the 2019 Blue Peter Book Award for Best Story, winner of the 2019 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize); The Hero Next Door is a ground-breaking new production created especially for 7 – 10 year olds celebrating difference, friendship and working together to do the right thing.

Meet Musa, who happens to be a refugee; Haley, an autistic girl who adores frogs; and a would-be bully by the name of Melody. This unlikely bunch come together to save an elderly neighbour from a con-woman posing as a carer, with thrilling and hilarious results.

The Hero Next Door uses film, animation, music and physical theatre to be accessible to all. As a leading inclusive theatre company, Face Front has been proud to assemble a diverse collective of cast and creatives, including disabled, non-disabled and culturally diverse actors.

“It was magic, excellent high quality theatre for young people”

– Karen Taylor, Arts Council

“I love this story, it was funny and dramatic and has lots of meaning”

– Young audience member
