This is a story about a girl who followed a map off the edge of the world
From the makers of The Bookbinder (Southland Arts Festival, 2016) comes an award-winning fairy tale drawn from the twitchy edges of children’s literature a dark world reminiscent of the works of Neil Gaiman and the late (great) Margaret Mahy.
Combining puppetry, shadow play, and live music, The Road That Wasn’t There is a captivating cross-over work for adults and older children (8 years+).
