‘Just think of it you and me, eating all of the cheese we can eat on the moon…’

Astronauts – Planet Earth needs you! Alex and dad, Gareth, haven’t been getting on too well lately. After the death of his mother, Alex has thrown himself into writing his stories; his newest one is about space, but his Dad thinks all of his stories are childish. With the help of Lena, their new babysitter, Alex and his dad go on an adventure to the moon and back and together they save the world along with your help! Travel through a meteor shower, make a wish upon a star and visit Mars and the moon, all within a magical, inflatable planetarium dome!

Concrete Youth present To the Moon and Back – an intergalactic sensory theatre show exploring space, adventure and the importance of family, for audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

In addition to a trip to the moon and back, ticketholders of the production will also gain access to free pre & post, online sensory stories with a member of Concrete Youth staff – before you enter the theatre, experience an accessible, online sensory story version of the production to prepare you for what to expect at the show, get to know the characters, what will happen and meet some other audiences that you will meet when you get there!

To the Moon and Back is supported by Arts Council England, Hull City Council, Interplay Theatre, Back to Ours & Middle Child.
