“An amazing experience… Can’t wait to build the important themes from Adrift into our curriculum.”
Local primary school headteacher

Two children are in a boat.

They play. They laugh. They argue.

They dream of catching a fish so big it will capsize the boat. Of encountering a mermaid who will sing them the most beautiful melodies. Of lassoing a whale who will pull them to shore, to a new land of thick green grass and endless blue skies. A safe land.

Adrift is a brand new play from Beverley Hancock-Smith, developed by acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre, created in partnership with St.Bernard’s RC Primary School.

Told with tenderness, humour and Action Transport Theatre’s (Happily Ever After, STATIk, Little Red) signature visual storytelling, Adrift is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.

This show is part of Square Chapel’s Open Door schools programme, supported with a grant from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.  It offers subsidised tickets and aims to increase access to the arts for schools in Calderdale.
