Three youngsters run away from their children’s home and sail down the river Tyne on a makeshift raft.  Stuck on the mudflats, they meet a strange girl who lives with an old man, Grampa.  The girl has a secret only Grampa knows…and he’s not telling.

Adapted from his own book for the stage by internationally acclaimed children’s author, David Almond (Skellig, Song for Ella Grey), Heaven Eyes is a poetic and gritty story about young people trying to find their way in the world.  Mysterious, heartbreaking and humorous in equal measure.

Theatre Sans Frontieres brings its own inimitable style of storytelling to this spell-binding and other-worldly tale.

Suitable for everyone aged 9 years and over.
