The Lost Happy Endings

Show Dates: 3 December 2011 - 7 January 2012

Jub’s job is important and she’s very proud of it. She collects and sends out the Happy Endings from all the stories in the world in time for everybody’s bedtime. But one night she is caught by a wicked witch who steals the Happy Endings. Wiser and cleverer than the witch, Jub dreams up a perfect plan to outwit her, and like all good fairytales, this one has a happy ending.
A delightful show with puppets, music, sign song, integrated BSL and creative captioning.

A model of inclusion and diversity on the mainstream stage. Great fun, loads of pazzaz and oodles of razzle dazzle.

The Lost Happy Endings is a truly compelling, surprising and beautiful story for children of all ages adapted by Red Earth Theatre from the book by Award-Winning Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.
