Shō and the Demons of the Deep – Live Theatre for Young Audiences @ Melrose Corn Exchange
Shō and the Demons of the Deep by Zoë Bullock, adapted from the work by Annouchka Gravel Galouchko
Shō’s city has been plagued by nightmares for as long as she can remember, but hers are the worst of all. One day, Shō has had enough. She throws her nightmares away into the river, where they wash out to sea. Soon people start copying her; the city is rid of its nightmares, and everyone is delighted. But sixty years later, when the river becomes poisoned, Shō’s granddaughter Hana must face her greatest fears in order to save her home.
Shō and the Demons of the Deep is a visual adventure story about overcoming fear, climate crisis and how the actions of one generation can affect the next. Inspired by the picture book of the same name by Annouchka Gravel Galouchko.
