Funnelwick Limb in association with Theatre Porto and Eastern Angles present The Chronicles of Atom & Luna.

An epic fairytale by Murray Lachlan Young, Atom and Luna are twins. They never break any rules and never, ever go into the deep dark wood.

But these are no ordinary twins. Trouble is, only the birds and the moon know just how special they are…

When life takes an unexpected turn all rules are turned upside down. Atom and Luna must venture into the deep, dark wood to find Old Mother Redbeard and to save their larger-than-life visitor, Iffly Sney.

Packed full of puppetry, music and Murray Lachlan Young’s lyrical text, The Chronicles of Atom & Luna is brought thrillingly to life by director Nina Hajiyianni.

An other-worldly adventure for ages 7 – 107.
