Unpacked Family Theatre Festival

Above Bounds Theatre Collective

The Ugly Duckling and other tales 

On a lake somewhere not far away, a mother duck is sitting on her eggs. But one doesn’t look like the others; it’s a different shape, a brighter colour and is much, much bigger! What will happen when the egg hatches and what stories will hatch with it?

Join Above Bounds Theatre Collective as they explore one of the most loved Hans Christian Anderson stories using songs, shadow puppetry and a little of your input to tell this famous tale. Come along on the journey with our Ugly Duck; there’s sure to be gasps, laughs and a few surprises along the way.

Perfect for 3+ and all the family!

The Ugly Duckling & Other Tales is the culmination of a research and development project led by Helen Bovey in collaboration with writer George Boundy and musician Emily Snee. The project is supported using public funding by The National Lottery through Arts Council England, Exeter City Council and Kingsteignton Town Council. Project partnership from Worboys Productions and the Bike Shed Theatre.

Venue: Exeter Phoenix
